Back to the IOW


From Nigel Grundy (PME):

“Some people have been in touch to say they were disappointed to have missed the Isle of Wight festival, 1968, 1969, 1970, talk by Ray Foulk (festivals organiser) and the free access exhibition preview evening at the Portsmouth Music Experience. I am planning to repeat the evening sometime early in the new year and will let you know when as soon as a date for the event has been settled.”


There is a Solent News TV report about the IoW exhibition herehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D17KdrUZaiU

“When Nik Turner (Hawkwind) visited the exhibition he found a photo of himself in a Telegraph supplement about the 1970 IoW festival. Hawkwind played wherever they could, usually for free and probably spent more time playing outside festival arenas than inside them!”
