Synopsis:
In 1970, half a million flower children set sail for the Isle of Wight in search of peace, love and understanding. Amidst the chaos of 'Britain's Woodstock', some lost their hippy ideals. But all who came witnessed one of the greatest ever rock festivals.
Now, for the first time on DVD, enjoy once again these legendary live performances by The Doors, The Who, Joni Mitchell, Free, The Moody Blues, Ten Years After, Jethro Tull and - in what turned out to be his final UK gig - Jimi Hendrix.
Their music stands the test of time. And so does this film, as it recalls the sheer hedonism of hippiedom, the backstage back stabbing that almost wrecked the festival, and the final passing of an age of innocence - the last great event.
