Today is an exciting day, because we're launching a brand new competition with our friends at Isle of Wight to win two free tickets to this year's festival.... I know! With headline acts including Jessie J, Example , and my personal hero Bruce Springsteen, as well as Primal Scream kicking things of on Thursday at the big top (GET YOUR ROCKS OFF!) this year's three-dayer has arguably the best line-up of the entire 2012 festival season.

This year, Oxfam will be launching its festival fashion shop at Isle of Wight. Our trendy shop team will be hand-selecting the clothing for each festival this year, and we want your help. So show us your Isle of Wight Festival style and we'll make sure the shop is packed full of all those fashion pieces you can't wait to get your hands on.  And in return you'll be in with a chance to win 2 weekend camping tickets to the festival - to see the Oxfam Festival Shop, and all the bands, for yourself!  Just send us a picture of your Isle of Wight Style (on twitter or instagram using #MyIOWstyle), we'll be posting them all onto our Fashion blog (you'll be famous!) and then tell all of your friends to vote for you!
