Festival-goers travelling with Wightlink will be treated to a ‘deck disco’ at its Portsmouth car ferry terminal while they await their voyage to the Isle of Wight Festival on Thursday (June 16).
Musical entertainment will be provided by DJs from Isle of Wight-based Hush.
Although they normally host silent discos, the trio will pump up the volume on the upper car deck to get people in the mood to party.
Hush — DJs Crabbie, Josh Peverley and Stu Murray — will then head to the Isle of Wight Festival themselves to provide their customary silent disco at The Intoxicated Tea Rooms.
This year's festival will see performances from Lewis Capaldi, Kasabian and Muse, in addition to local talent including Wet Leg, Beth Brookfield and The Optimists.
Wightlink Chief Executive, Keith Greenfield, says:
“We’re excited to see the festival return to its usual spot in June and are looking forward to welcoming thousands of music lovers as they travel to the Island for what promises to be a spectacular weekend.
“We are hoping to get the party started early with some entertainment at our Portsmouth car ferry terminal thanks to our friends at Hush.
“Everyone at our ports and on our ships and FastCats is ready to welcome revellers on this busy but fun weekend.”
