Bauer returns to Isle of Wight Festival with live backstage shows

Three Bauer radio brands will be live from the Isle of Wight Festival at Seaclose Park this weekend.

Absolute Radio, Greatest Hits Radio and Hits Radio will be bringing live performances, interviews and other highlights from the festival, along with special documentaries.

Absolute leads the comprehensive coverage, kicking off this Thursday night with a Pet Shop Boys documentary hosted by Matt Lucas. ‘Pet Shop Boys – A Celebration’ will air on Absolute Radio at 9pm, ahead of the weekend, with the chance to listen again on Greatest Hits Radio on Sunday afternoon at 4pm.

Absolute Radio’s Ben Burrell and Sarah Champion will be broadcasting live backstage with shows on Friday from 7pm, Saturday from 6pm and Sunday from 5pm.

Both Absolute Radio and Hits Radio have been offering listeners a chance to win tickets to the festival in the run-up to the event.

In addition to the Pet Shop Boys documentary this Sunday, Greatest Hits Radio South Coast’s Rick Jackson joins Richard Allinson and Kate Thornton on their Saturday shows (from 10am and 1pm) and Rick will be with Richard again the Sunday with even more festival news from 10am.

And for those who miss out at the weekend – or want to relive festival highlights once again – Jackie Brambles will be sharing all the best bits on her Greatest Hits Radio show the week after (Monday – Thursday from 7pm).

Gary Stein, Director of Audio for Bauer Media Audio UK said: “The Isle of Wight Festival is one of the year’s most anticipated live music events, and we are thrilled to immerse our listeners in the experience, whether it be winning their way into the event or making them feel like they are there, as we bring their favourite artists to their radio, smart speaker and phone.”
