The Isle of Wight festival actually began as a series of mini festivals between 1968 and 1970, with the likes of The Who, Jimi Hendrix and The Doors all performing to pumped-up crowds at one time or another.
Between 1970 and 2002 the festival went on hiatus, but over the last two decades has cemented itself as one of the best festivals on these shores, having played host to everyone from Pearl Jam and Foo Fighters to Coldplay and The Strokes over the years.
