The Isle of Wight Festival 1970 was held August 26 – 31, 1970. It was the last of three consecutive music festivals to take place on the island between 1968 and 1970. It was widely acknowledged as the largest musical event of its time (until Summer Jam at Watkins Glen in 1973), greater than the attendance of Live Aid, Woodstock and Rock in Rio. The Guinness Book of Records has cited its attendance as 600,000, this is just above the organisers’ estimate of 500,000. (source: Wikipedia)
Great clip of The Who. As a drummer, it’s hard for me to put into words what Keith Moon has meant to me. I can say that he plays drums the way they were supposed to be played–like an animal. Great post!
I thought this was an event that happend here in boring ass VA, in the Isle of Wight. WRONG! I should have known better! lol. PLL, CordieB.
I was not even born then. I watched it first on the history channel here in India. Great Concert.
