IW Literary Festival - Stealing Dylan from Woodstock..

'Stealing Dylan from Woodstock' - a talk with music and film by Ray Foulk


"When the World Came to the Isle of Wight" by Ray Foulk, organiser of the 1968, 1969 and 1970 Isle of Wight Festivals.

Friday 19th June at 6.30pm (doors open 5.30).

The evening includes music, film clips and an exhibition of memorabilia.  There will also be a bar providing refreshments.


"Bringing the World to the Isle of Wight, Stealing Dylan from Woodstock"

For a time, the Isle of Wight Festivals transformed the quiet English island into the rock’n’roll capital of the world. 

The Havenstreet event will feature a talk by festival organiser, Ray Foulk, with readings by his daughter/co-author, Caroline Foulk, of excerpts from Stealing Dylan from Woodstock. This will include  how Havenstreet played a controversial part in the story of the Isle of Wight Festivals. Most significant is the account of how the Island got the better of Woodstock, USA, in securing the performance of the world’s most important counterculture figure, to give his come-back performance. Music recorded at the festival and film clips will help bring to life the memories of 46 years ago.

Books will be signed by Ray and Caroline.

- The County Press Shop, Newport
- 'Made on the Isle of Wight' in Bullen Road, Ryde

On the door on the day: £9 and £4.50

"Bringing a love of the written and spoken word to Island children."
