Details:

The original Isle of Wight Festivals were landmark moments for their time - they sit alongside Glastonbury and Woodstock in festival history. The first Isle of Wight festival took place on 31st August - 1st September 1968 and featured the likes of T- Rex and Fairport Convention. The 1970 Isle of Wight festival was a five day marathon featuring The Doors, Hawkwind and Joan Baez. Jimi Hendrix also played at the festival in 1970 just weeks before his untimely death. Flower power: At the height of the flower-power era, hundreds of thousands of music fans came from all over the world to chill out in the fields of the Isle of Wight. They packed onto the Isle of Wight ferry from the mainland for up to five days (although some stayed considerably longer) of live rock, communal living, free love and mind-bending substances. Besides all the peace, love and latrines, there was the music - non-stop performances from some of the greatest pop musicians of any era. These days the Isle of Wight festival remains and Iconic event hosting some of the biggest names across the music industry Come and join the party! 2020 Lineup TBA
