after Woodstock, this massive 6 day music festival took place off the
British coast, August 26-31, 1970. Attendance was possible only by boat
or helicopter, yet the crowd grew to an astonishing 700,000+ people.
Overwhelming logistic problems mixed with a complete inability to control
the conditions or - in some cases the safety of the patrons - put a serious

all outdoor/overnight concerts on the Isle of Wight [a cessation that
lasted more than 50 years].

of music from the Classic Rock's Golden Period.
