As the first major festival of the season, the 13th annual Isle of Wight Festival well and truly kicked off the summer in style.
To celebrate another epic year, the Festival has teamed up with Variety, the Children’s Charity, and a host of music stars for an exclusive charity event to raise money for disadvantaged and disabled children and young people across the UK.  
In support of this incredible cause, artists who performed over that unforgettable weekend will take to the stage again for a night of great music and fundraising, presented by TV and radio personality Gaby Roslin. 

The Struts
A quintessentially English proposition, The Struts built their loyal fan base through fanatical word of mouth, blistering live shows and monstrous hooks that steadfastly refuse to leave your brain. The result is high octane, heavy, soulful Rock'n'Roll, that delivers on every level.

James Walsh
After almost a decade with multi-million selling band Starsailor, James Walsh has emerged as a singer-songwriter in his own right, with the release of his debut solo album, 'Turning Point'.

The Carnabys
The Carnabys hail from South West London and are on a mission to bring live Rock music back to the fore, with their full on performances. The Reunion show will be their unofficial "first peek" preview of the debut album 'No Money on The Moon'. Watch the video for their new single 'The Pocket', here.

Little Eye
Massive choruses, killer guitar and hooks to kill for - Little Eye have built a reputation as a blistering live act. Think a Scots take on Fallout Boy meets Green Day, a little bit of Angels and Airwaves with a dash of Twin Atlantic.

The Soho Hobo
The Soho Hobo's music is a mixture of Vintage London, Ian Dury nods, Britpop winks and West End Swagger, bubbling from the Indie roots of maverick UK solo artist and singer songwriter Tim Arnold.

King Eider
Having released their debut album 'The Deeper the Water' in May, King Eider have been making waves in Scotland’s music scene with their fresh and hearty concoction of folk music. After being spotted by Gaby Roslin amongst others, they have enjoyed BBC radio slots and considerable critical acclaim.

Skinny Living
Skinny Living have been championed by Gaby Roslin after appearing on her BBC Radio London Show for an interview and live performance.
Their self-released single 'Storybook' got to number 39 on the Amazon download chart, and 69 on the iTunes Pop chart in its first week - Check it out here.

Tickets for this show are available from the box office at the venue at face value if you pay in cash. Please note promoters may increase ticket price if purchased on the night. Please note, you may be required to have your ID scanned at the front door.

All the bands are donating their full fees to Variety, the UK's best known children's charity.
