Isle of Wight Festival to be broadcast in 3D

The Isle of Wight Festival is set to receive the three dimensional treatment this year after Sky Arts announced that it would broadcast the event in 3D.

It means you'll be able to see the likes of Pearl Jam and Bruce Springsteen up close and personal, who are set to headline the festival in June.

The TV channel will also show six hours worth of coverage from the festival a day. Sky Arts channel director James Hunt said in a statement:

"The Isle Of Wight Festival is the most dynamic and exciting festival in the UK: we knew that with this year's lineup, Sky Arts coverage had to be bigger, better and bolder than ever before. Broadcasting the festival live for six hours a day not only confirms Sky Arts as the destination for great music coverage, with 3D it also brings viewers closer to the real-life festival experience."
