    Background: Thousands of youths from all over the world are pouring onto the Isle of Wight, off Britain's South coast, this week for the encore to last year's huge Pop Festival.

    Already many of them have pitched their tents on the best sites and are eagerly
    awaiting the big show. Topping the bill is Joan Baez and Donovan along with
    several big name pop groups. A spokesman for the promoters, Fiery Creations, has
    said they are expecting as big a crowd as last year when 250,000 pop fans
    over-ran the sleepy holiday island.

    Although the idea of an invasion by the pop music lovers is causing some
    foreboding among resident s, the youngsters bring lot of business to the area.

    Many locals fear a repetition of last year's frolics when a naked girl and a
    youth made love in public.

    But there will be other attractions for the young swingers -- the patrons have
    established a "village" with kiosks, cafeterias, and even boutiques.

    The festival begins on Wednesday (256 Aug) and runs for five days.
