LUCKY Isle of Wight Festival-goers could get their hands on tickets at the 1970 price — the date of the iconic event at Afton Down, which played host Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Joni Mitchell and The Who.
A competition has been launched today (Wednesday) giving revellers the chance to win tickets for just £3, with car ferry crossings for £2 and foot passenger crossings for the princely sum of just six shillings — or 30p — when they buy an early bird ticket.
Tickets must be purchased before January 16 to be in with a chance of winning.
Acts confirmed for this year's festival include Biffy Clyro, Calvin Harris and Rudimental, plus Passenger, The 1975 and The Waterboys.
The festival will be held at Seaclose Park, Newport, from June 12 to June 15.
