Now held in Newport, the first festival was hosted at Hells Field, Ford Farm, near Godshill and was attended by approximately 10,000 people.

In 1970, after unexpectedly high turnout, Parliament added a section to the Isle of Wight County Council Act 1971, which prevented nighttime open-air gatherings of more than 5,000 people on the island without a special permit from the council.

Many artists have performed since the festival was revived two decades ago, including Amy Winehouse, The Rolling Stones, Queen + Adam Lambert and David Bowie.

Last month, Mark revealed that he finally hopes to be known as the “cool one” in Take That when he releases his first solo album in ten years.

In a new interview, the singer shared his latest music offering, revealing that bandmates Gary Barlow, 51, and Howard Donald, 54, joked it was “s**t.”

Speaking of his highly anticipated album, Mark shared: The sun: ‘I try to play it cool, but I’m not cool, there’s no coolness in me. Even if I’m in Take That all this time, I still don’t think it’s there, but that’s okay.

“Howard (Donald) always thinks he’s cool, and Jason (Orange) was really cool — he just is. At least I’ll be the coolest man on this album!’

The group last performed together in 2019 on their Odyssey: Greatest Hits Live tour and have taken a break in recent years to work on solo projects.

And their hiatus, as well as the coronavirus lockdown, allowed Mark to work on his own album, although the record was initially greeted with a cheeky joke from his friends.

He explained that he had sent “the number” to Howard and Gaz, only to have them say “it was s**t,” and Mark quickly added, “No, they were very complimentary after that.”
