In 1970, a legendary music festival was held on the Isle of Wight, in the south of the United Kingdom. Every day, Europe 1 offers you an archive report produced around what was, one year after Woodstock, the last great hippie gathering.

The special envoy of our radio station who was called Europe number 1 at the time, François Jouffa, was on the Isle of Wight. Every day, he chronicled the news of this gigantic festival on the air.

This Tuesday evening, he tells about the express construction of a village unlike any other which will bring together several hundred thousand festival-goers over a long weekend.

Report from August 25, 1970.
