This Weekend:
Isle of Wight Festival


By: Spacelab Research Staff

Starting out in the late 60's as a british catalyst to the new music scene, the Isle of Wight Festival quickly grew in 1969 when they landed Bob Dylan as a headliner. Big names like Joe Cocker, the Who, and Free followed.


By 1970, the festival brought in over half a million people and was widely regarded as the British Woodstock, which was great, but the festival was a little out of control in terms of drugs and fighting. So much so that the British Parliament passed the Isle of Wight Act in 1970 banning all of festivals on that Island.


Cut to today, and you've got bands like The Sex Pistols, Iggy and the Stooges, and N.E.R.D.


Listen to some of the bands at the festival below and check out the festival overview for a full line up.
