Whats On August - World Music Festival-Rhythmtree

This August Bank Holiday there is a very special World Music Festival called the Rhythmtree Festival (normally held in July) in the Isle of Wight, but becuase of the  floods in the early part of July, the organisers got special permission from the authorities to move the festival dates to the 24th to 26th August 2012.

So if you haven't made your mind up what to do this August get online and book your-self three days of World Music, Fusion, Blues, Dance, great food and excellent company. (Book Here)

It's easy to get to from most of the UK, just head to Southampton Docks (Red Funnel Ferries) and the whole trip from docks to East Cowes in Isle of Wight only takes around an hour or so, then a simple drive to the Rythmtree Festival site (SAT NAV ref: PO30-4NA).

(And folks, you don't need a passport !)

I know your sitting there thinking, well maybe later, do it now, nothing worse than being at home on a perfectly great  bank Holiday when you could be listening to ;
