The Isle of Wight Festival 2012 was the eleventh revived Isle of Wight Festival, held at Seaclose Park in Newport on the Isle of Wight. The event ran from 21–24 June 2012.[1][2][3]

The 2012 event was the second under a ten-year deal between the Isle of Wight Council and the promoters Solos. Dubbed the "American Trilogy" by festival organiser John Giddings, it was headlined by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Pearl Jam and Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band.[4]

Overnight heavy rain on 21 and 22 June waterlogged the event ground and cars driving on it turned it into a mudbath and had to be towed out by a tractor, resulting in visiting fans' cars waiting to be allowed in backing up the roads all the way back to the ferry dock.[5][6]
