Isle of Wight Festival to Return

The UK's Isle of Wight Festival, which once hosted the Who, Bob Dylan, Jimi Henrdix and the Doors, will be revived on June 3. The festival's three-year run ended in 1970 when event oragnizers were unprepared for an unruly crowd of more than 500,000 mostly ticketless fans. "It's taken thirty years for the people of the Isle of Wight to recover," organizer John Giddings told Rolling Stone, "but they now realize that the name is synonymous with music festivals worldwide, right alongside Woodstock and Glastonbury."
