THE party's started at the iconic Isle of Wight Festival with Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds bringing the first full day to a close in style.

Music fans have been swarming across the Solent in the last few days and they've already proved they're up for it, come rain or shine.

As usual, there's an eclectic line-up with something for everyone.

Friday saw performances ranging from Bang Bang Romeo, Sigala, Jax Jones and the acclaimed Hacienda Classical in the Big Top to James, Lily Allen, Courteeners and the High Flying Birds on the main stage.

Looks like tonight's going to be fun too and there's still time to get here.

Cage The Elephant and Sam Fender have pulled out due to injury and illness but they've been replaced on the Big Top line-up by Friendly Fires and Yungblud so what's not to love?

And there's a party brewing on the Main Stage with Rick Astley, Anne-Marie, Bastille, George Ezra and special guest Fat Boy Slim performing later.

Quick - get on a ferry.
