John Adie died October 27, 2015.
He was the British festival executive, and the co-founder of the Two Moors Festival.
John and Penny his wife, founded the festival in 2001, when their region was dotted with funeral mounds of cattle, slaughtered during a foot-and-mouth epidemic, and farmers were taking their own lives in despair.
They have raised over £1.5 million for music and gave countless young artists the opportunity to cultivate a new audience.
John Adie was born into an army family in India.
He had a military career until 1984.
Three years later, John purchased an old farm, on Exmoor and turned it into a family business.
John Adie had three daughters. He passed away at age 69 in October 2015.
