    Major Rock Festival Could Include Coldplay

    Proposals are in the pipeline for the Rock The Rock Isle of Man Music Festival – with Noble's Park rumoured to be a potential venue.


    Robbie Williams, Coldplay and other major international artists are being considered as potential acts, it is understood. More than a dozen acts could take to the stage during a two-day festival, with tickets costing more than £100. The event website – rocktherockiom.com – says the festival is 'coming soon,' though no other details are given.Aquarius Media is behind the proposals, but is remaining tight-lipped about it at this stage. It is understood the event is in the very early stages of planning. Reporters at iomtoday have heard that if the event does go ahead it could be held over two days at the end of July.


    Douglas Council leader David Christian confirmed an approach has been made to the town hall and is being considered. The Department of Tourism and Leisure has also been approached. Live music is extremely popular in the Island and the Villa Marina has hosted a number of world-class rock acts over the past few years.


    Such a festival would no doubt attract music fans to the Island from the UK and beyond. The Isle of Wight holds a major international rock festival each year and has managed to attract some of the biggest names in music. Festivals are incredibly popular in the UK, with Glastonbury, the V Festival and T in the Park being among the biggest.


    More information about Rock The Rock could be revealed in the weeks to come.
