IOW70 was the greatest festival I've ever been too,had an incredible time there made some good friends after travelling down from Blackpool on my own,was on the island for 9 days and never felt threatened at all,did see some offences coming down but that was it.took me ages to get over it when I returned home.it will remain a massive part of my life always,something you can't forget,thank you to everyone involved.
