Music, arts and specialist factual producer, CC-Lab, is gearing up for the 20th anniversary of its production of live coverage for the iconic Isle of Wight Festival with a new deal to produce 17 hours of live coverage and 3 one hour highlight shows.

 Over the last two decades the company has been responsible for bringing live sets at the festival from artists including The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Fleetwood Mac, Jay Z, Depeche Mode, The Killers, Rod Stewart , Blur and The Who.

This year’s live shows will air on Sky Arts and Sky Showcase from Friday 21st June through to Sunday 23rd June with the additional highlights shows scheduled for the following Monday 24th to Wednesday 26th.

Once again CC-Lab will provide full HD multi camera coverage with 5.1 sound from both the Main Stage and the Big Top including performances from American Rockers Green Day’s only UK Festival appearance and the first live performance coverage of The Prodigy since the band reformed after the death of Keith Flint.

This year’s presenting team of Edith Bowman, Shaun Keaveny and Remi Burgz will guide the audience through live coverage from over thirty other acts across the weekend including Pet Shop Boys, The Streets, The Pretenders, Crowded House, Keane, Nothing But Thieves, Johnny Marr, Simple Minds and the Blossoms.

Phil Edgar Jones, director at Sky Arts said: “We love our yearly trip to the Isle of Wight Festival on Sky Arts – our colleagues at CC Lab always translate the joy of the festival on the ground into an even more joyful TV treat. We salute their 20 years of energy, creativity and brilliance bringing us such glorious coverage and look forward to 20 more.”

CC-Lab’s creative director Justin Rees said: ‘It’s a privilege to once again be in the live production mosh pit of one of our country’s finest festivals that brings such rich history and the many iconic performances that have gone down as legendary. 20 years after we first produced this amazing show, there’s always a new angle to consider. With The Prodigy back after the sad passing of Keith Flint and the chance to see Green Day’s only UK showing, amongst so many other highlights, we’re grateful to once again be given the opportunity to let fans feel like they’re right there with us.’
