 Isle of Wight Festivals 1968-70 .
Links.

    A simple search will find you thousands of IOW links  , but very few of them will give you much detail of the early festivals .The vast majority focus on the 1970 bash and much of the information is replicated or simply a basic mention that an artist played at the festival. Not particularly useful if you already knew that anyway. Here are the links I've found that have information that takes you further than you would if you simply read everything that I have accumulated on this site.
