The Isle of Wight Festival is best remembered as one of the last places Jimi Hendrix played. The legendary guitarist died 18 days after appearing at the festival in 1970. As a tribute, Plant plans to perform Hendrix’s “Hey Joe” during his set. According to a Reuters report, Plant has also agreed to play at least five original Led Zeppelin tracks.
The Isle of Wight is located off the coast of southern England.
