The Cameron Life Festival Experience

The World's Music Legends - Hendrix, Jim Morrison, The Who, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, and Miles Davis are amongst the many artists captured both on and off stage at the 1970 Isle of Wight festival by the award-winning Cameraman and Director, Charles Everest. The exhibition contains framed colour prints hung as a time-line to tell the story, from build-up to clean-up, taking audiences of all ages back 40 years to when the Isle of Wight hosted the "Largest ever event" (reportedly 600,000 people attended).

Additional supporting material, including sculptures from Guy Portelli's Pop Icon collection (by negotiation, subject to availability), audio visual presentations, life-size banner/poster prints, and festival related artefacts/ memorabilia, can be included, as well as additional 'cameo' collections of prints, custom curated to feature specific musicians or aspects of the festival to add local interest or to follow a topical theme.

There are also opportunities to involve local communities in various ways and a wide range of merchandise to stock.
