Journalism and academic writing treat popular music performances differently. How is this so, and what conclusions can be drawn about the nature of the respective discourses? The article addresses these questions through an exchange between Tim Quirk (journalist) and Jason Toynbee (academic) focusing in particular on the performance of The Who at the Isle of Wight festival in 1970 as captured on film.
