The Isle of Wight Festivals of 1968, 1969 and 1970 rank among the all-time greatest rock festivals, with acts such as Jefferson Airplane, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Jimi Hendrix, the Doors and Jethro Tull all taking the stage.
In 1970, the Who’s stunning performance there became an instant classic. That performance was eventually released on CD/DVD. The festival itself was inactive for many years until it was resurrected in 2002. Two years later, the Who made a triumphant return to its stage
