V-Dub Island 2015 - 23rd to 27th July Isle of Wight

Discussion in 'Shows Events You've Missed unless you went an' started by mattw, Apr 17, 2015.

  1. Went to this last year very disappointing :(
     
  2. how come, would be good to hear feedback? I've not been before but since I happened to be on the island anyway, thought it was worth a visit.
     
  3. Worth a visit if you're already there but I wouldn't go there just for it, we were all crammed in like sardines, heavy handed security staff, couldn't take any food/drink into the arena/marquee, hardly any stands worth talking about, police arresting campers for smoking dope :(

    check out this place http://stoats-farm.co.uk/about-us/ a good hearty walk to the needles and a lovely pub with a beer garden right next door
     
  4. We went 2 years ago we left after 2 days and went off round the island for a week just did not gel with the show

    To be honest though I am a grumpy git and have given up on vw shows they are not the chilled out shows they use to be its all T5s playing their own music and a excuse to get loud and yellow snowed

    oxiderenegade and VWT2GEL like this.
  5. Damn that looked perfect date wise as we are meant to be on the Island for a party on Sat 18th July, the dates you have posted up are for the 'carry on camping' bit.

    The actual 'festival' is 23rd-27th July, which i'll struggle to do.

    @VWT2GEL doesn't give the festival a very positiive review, so i'll probably give the pre camp a miss as well

    Another vote for Stoats farm camp site, may well head back there
     
  6. I went to V-Dub Island last year and pretty much enjoyed it. This year its at a new site / venue.

    The strange thing for me at any of these events is the 'Drive out' - this basically leaves the event empty for most of one of the days. This cannot be good for the traders. Not sure why organisers think its a good idea??

    I was looking at going to this last year but then couldn't make it. It looked v good on paper so interesting to hear otherwise as I was thinking about it this year.

    I shall see if you can do day visit as I may just take the camper but stay at my friends on the island. Maybe I could tag on the end of the drive out :)

    A quick plug for my friends place if anyone is near wootton. They have a dairy farm with a lovely shop and cafe (and B&B) briddlesford lodge farm :)

    Hi Stuart,


    I don't know but I can't see how they could stop someone tagging on the end in a VW. I reckon they'd want as many as poss to make a visual. :)
