On 31st August 1970, 35-year-old Leonard Cohen performed at the third annual Isle Of Wight music festival. The audience of 600,000 was in a fiery and frenzied mood, having turned the festival into a political arena, trampling the fences, setting fire to structures and equipment – all stoked by the most incendiary performance of Jimi Hendrix’s career.
As Cohen followed Hendrix’s set, onlookers (and fellow festival headliners) Joan Baez, Kris Kristofferson, Judy Collins and others stood side-stage in awe as the Canadian folk singer/songwriter and poet/novelist quietly tamed the crowd.
This legendary concert showcases in high-definition, this iconic and historic moment that came to define a generation musically.
