What Is Isle of Wight Festival?

Originally held from 1968 to 1970, the Isle of Wight Festival is a music event which takes place every year on England's Isle of Wight in England.
The original events were promoted and organized by the brothers, Ron, Ray and Bill Foulk under the company which they jointly manage, the Fiery Creations Limited. It was first held in such venues as the Ford Farm (near Godshill), Wootton, and Afton Down (near Freshwater), respectively.
The 1969 event cemented the festival's lure, as it was notable for attracting between 150,000 to 200,000 fans from all over the world. The massive flocking of guests that year was mostly attributed to the appearance of Bob Dylan in his first commercial performance since 1967 when he got into a motor cycle accident. That number ballooned even further, with 600,000 people attending the 1970 event—one of the biggest crowd assembled for a single music festival and also one of the biggest gathering of people then.
The festival now hosts only a fraction the attendance it enjoyed those first few years, as the Parliament passed “Isle of Wight Act,” which forbids gatherings of more than 5,000 people on the island without special license. Nonetheless, the Isle of Wight Festival is still a highly sought after event. Since 2002, it has been held annually. It has extended its venue grounds beyond its central stage at Seaclose Park.
