All you need is loot

Jon Blake's novel 69ers about the 1969 Isle of Wight Festival has an apposite epigraph: 

Note to the reader: this novel originally began by quoting the first verse of The Ballad of John and Yoko. However, not wanting to kiss the ass of Sony/ATV Music Publishing nor pay them a penny for permission to use lyrics freely available all over the web, I trust to your own initiative in seeking them out for yourself.

That cover for 69ers definitely deserves a place on Slipped Disc. But was it actually taken at the 1969 Isle of Wight Festival? Or did it come from the Woodstock Festival which took place two weeks earlier? As Norman would say, never mind the facts, feel the clicks.
