The UK’s oldest festival – first held in 1968 – celebrates the 50th anniversary of the iconic 1970 festival this year – a festival which cemented its place within pop history with performances from Jimi Hendrix, The Who and Joni Mitchell. Hendrix’s legendary headline performance was his last in the UK and the 1970 festival was the last on the island until it was resurrected in 2002.
