Address Isle of Wight United Kingdom

Natural sanctuary, the Isle of Wight is one of the many treasures of England, located a few miles from the French coast.

Painted by William Turner and sung by many artists, the Isle of Wight is recognized as a biosphere reserve by UNESCO. Famous for housing Osborne House, where Queen Victoria breathed her last in 1901, this island is also popular with tourists for its beautiful beaches and white cliffs. It was on the edge of the latter that the 1970 edition of the mythical festival took place. Since then, the event is still held in Wight but not in the same place.
