FEEL­GOOD FESTIVALS

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - 6-page Nostalgia Special -

The dawn of a new decade was to usher in a fresh era of pop­u­lar music, with glam rock chal­leng­ing the tra­di­tional type. This was per­haps ex­em­pli­fied by two of 1970’s big festivals, Isle of Wight and the first Glas­ton­bury event. Jimi Hen­drix starred at the for­mer but died just over two weeks later, the day be­fore Glas­ton­bury. The Kinks were meant to head­line that gath­er­ing, but were re­placed by Tyran­nosaurus Rex, soon to be­come T Rex, with glit­tery singer, Marc Bolan. Big sin­gles in­cluded The Bea­tles’ Let It Be, Mungo Jerry’s In The Sum­mer­time and Si­mon & Gar­funkel’s Bridge over Trou­bled Wa­ter.
