|Isle of Wight Festival 2003|
|Dates||14–15 June 2003|
|Location(s)||Seaclose Park, Newport, Isle of Wight, UK|
The Isle of Wight Festival 2003 was the second revived Isle of Wight Festival to take place on the Seaclose Park site in Newport on the Isle of Wight. It was the first to take place on the second weekend in June, which would be then set as the Festival's annual date.
A follow up to Rock Island 2002, the event was taken over by promoters 'Solo' and was thus the first curated by John Giddings. Camping facilities near the site were increased, available from Thursday to Monday. Attendance was around 14,000.
Starsailor was the first band to return to the revived festival. They would appear again in 2005 and 2008.
Weekend Tickets cost £50.
