Jimi Hendrix’s appearance at the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival was his last ever UK show. Like all festivals at the cusp of the Sixties, the 1970 Isle of Wight was badly organised and running well behind schedule, especially by the third day. More fans had shown up than had been adequately catered for, and fences had been broken down, allowing large numbers to get in free. Too many acts had been booked and too little time allowed for changeovers between sets. There were also technical problems with the PA system picking up radio signals. Jimi was always very nervous before a performance and the three hour delay between his arrival backstage and show time only served to increase his irritation. The problems were a precursor for his tour of Europe over the following week, when things would get much worse. Text from Tony Brown’s book Hendrix – The Final Days
