IOW festival

Saw the Airplane also at The Roundhouse in London around the same time as support for the Doors. Had to wait until 1970 to see the GOGD

Deadheads in England

I am an English Deadhead but currently live in Spain.

I know of 4 Deadheads in Norfolk and as far as i know there is one in Lowestoft which isn't too far from you.

I am just back in Spain after going to a Deadhead party in Kent and seeing Barry Melton 7 Green ray, The Cosmic Charlies (an English Dead cover band based in Essex)

this might be of interest to European Deadheads

IoW Fest

Nope-didn't make the original, was just a baby, and on the wrong continent :-). Have only seen a documentary about it.But you are right, show from this year looked pretty corporate and tame, despite some interesting bands. One singer-Amy Winehouse caught my attention with her great voice! Such a skinny person, and such a big voice! Gave me a good laugh to watch all those young kids watching Country Joe, and looking very blankly at Donovan. If I remember right, they both WERE at the original fest.

Dead heads in England

I see if I can track em down.
Yep fests are getting more organised, but losing the nice laidback hippiness feeling. I have not been to Glastenbury for a few years but watching it the box its all very yuppy and corporate now.
As to weather its been awful for ages now so I'm expecting the wellies to come out from the shed.
Still looking forward to it no end, switch off from work and TV and all that stuff.
Did you get to the origanal IoW fest that had some excellent bands on, missed that as well.
Born at the wrong time I guess although having topped 50 it seems I should have done more.

Sure there are a couple here, have seen posts from British guys here and there! Is one guy posting under "Howard" if I remember correctly.

Watched footage on t.v. last night from Isle of Wight (sp?) festival 2007, which looked like were some fun bands there, and also alot more DRY and organized than the original fest.
