Ferries may be very busy later this month as the Isle of Wight Festival takes place.
Despite concerns about the weather prospects for the rest of this month, organisers of the musical event have revealed all camping tickets have now been sold, meaning thousands of young people will be crossing the Solent for the event, which runs from June 21st-24th.
And the number of people attending may rise further as there are still non-camping tickets for sale, which could be snapped up by people able to make other accommodation arrangements on the island.
The venue for the festival is Seaclose Park in Newport, with organisers noting that the way there is signposted from the ferry terminals at Ryde, Yarmouth and Fishbourne, all of which are served by Wightlink.
Performers at the event's main stage include Elbow, Biffy Clyro, Pearl Jam, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Jessie J, Madness and Big Country.
