50th Anniversary of the Isle of Wight Festival
The Isle of Wight Festival has made history for decades - T. Rex, The Who and Jefferson Airplane played alongside stars like Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix. Hendrix’s final performance was at the festival, with 600,000 people reportedly turning out to see him play. That was back in 1970, but the event actually started two years earlier, in 1968, making 2018 the Isle of Wight Festival’s 50th year.
