Isle of Wight to showcase festival photography

An Isle of Wight library is set to play host to an exhibition of festival photographs.

The 1970 Isle of Wight Festival is the subject of the work, which will be on show at Freshwater Library from island photographer Chris Weston.

Tourists heading to the Isle of Wight between August 2nd and 28th 2010 will be able to visit the exhibition, with a special event held on the final day to encourage others to bring along their pictures from the music festival.

Jimi Hendrix famously played at the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival and he is the subject of some of the iconic photos taken by Weston during the bash.

He headlined the Saturday night of the event, while other acts on the bill included The Doors, The Who, Joan Baez and Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

Hendrix died just three weeks after his legendary appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970.
