DATA: 13 - 16 June 2019
PLACE: Isle of Wight, England.
Born in the distant 1968, Isle Of Wight Festival celebrates 51 years of life.
Isle of Wight is a true paradise in the English Channel, just south of Southampton. A magical and evocative place, with many naturalistic and landscape attractions. And it is in this context that fits, to perfection, Isle Of Wight Festival, musical review of which the edition dated 1970 has become legendary.
It was the last European concert by Jim Morrison and the Doors, as well as Jimi Hendrix's last show before his death.
This, unfortunately, was also the last edition of the Festival that was forced, for various vicissitudes, to close its doors. Despite this, the Festival has always kept intact charm and power in the collective imagination. At 22 years away, the Festival has been reborn. Four days of Rock, Dj set and extraordinary areas, for a truly unforgettable Isle Of Wight Experience!
Big names. A truly unique location. A story of music and freedom. Here are the reasons why the Isle of Wight Festival continues to thrill. Even at a distance of 50 years!
