Hawkwind Isle of Wight gig 'will have strongest line-up ever'

The organisers of an upcoming gig on the Isle of Wight have stated that they are putting together the strongest line-up the event has ever seen.

Hawkwind's 40th anniversary festival takes place next weekend (August 27th to 29th 2010), although those behind the bash are yet to reveal some of the acts that will be on the bill.

Those musicians announced to be playing at the gig include Mr Quimby's Beard, Krankschaft, the Lloyd Langton Group, Here and Now and Girlschool, reports the Isle of Wight County Press.

Hawkfest at Afton Down is being held to celebrate the anniversary of the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival, which famously hosted one of the last live performances by legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix, who died a short time later.

The band memorably complained about the over-commercialisation of the event when they played so those on Isle of Wight holidays to see the group play live may be interested to note what feel the event has.
