Diskografska kuća Island Records je prošle godine u maju mesecu proslavljala 50-to godišnjicu svog postojanja. Za tu priliku je priredjen sedmodnevni muzički festival u Londonu, u Shepard Bush Empire. To je ujedno bila i prilika da se nove i skoro zaboravljene  muzičke zvezde ponovo čuju i ujedine:

Sly & Robbie & The Compass Point Allstars (sa vrlo specijalnim gostom)
The Fratellis + specijalni gost+ Bombay Bicycle Club

Cat Stevens/Yusuf and friends + Baaba Maal
Paul Weller + Ernest Ranglin + Spooky Tooth
Keane + Tom Tom Club + Ladyhawke
Amy Winehouse + Toots & The Maytals + I Blame Coco

Island Records su osnovali Christ Blackwell i Graeme Goodall 1959. u Jamaici. Ime su pozajmili od Alec Waughove knjige i hit pesme Harry Belafontea, ‘Island in the Sub’.

1962. kompanija se preselila u UK, a 1989. Blackwell je prodaje PolyGramu.

Island‘ je najveća indie diskografska kuća u istoriji britanske muzike.
