Experience Jimi Hendrix and other legends of rock 'n' roll in the long awaited release of Message To Love: The Isle of Wight Festival, a film that captures what many have called the last great rock festival. In 1970, half-a-million flower children set sail for the Isle of Wight, an island off southern England for a five-day event in search of peace, love, and understanding. Amid the chaos of what's been called "Britain's Woodstock," many of those hippie ideals were lost.
This long-awaited film documents one of the most significant events in rock 'n' roll history. Two hours of footage highlights legendary performances by The Who, Joan Baez, Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell, Free, The Moody Blues, Ten Years After and Jethro Tull-and the last stage performance of Jim Morrison with The Doors, and by Jimi Hendrix-18 days before his death. Their music stands the test of time, as does the film, as it recalls the sheer hedonism of hippydom, the backstage backstabbing that almost wrecked the festival, and the final passing of an age of innocence-the last great event.
