The following stills of the crowd , Family, the Grateful Dead and Screaming Lord Sutch are taken from Bob Colover's four minute film of the festival . Although the quality is not that great they are one of the few remaining archives of live performances of the festival and as such deserve to be seen by a wider public . Thanks to Bob for making the film available.

Many thanks go to Garry Marsh for his fantastic archival material which has enabled us to construct most of the site. Also to Martin Williams for his oral history and colour photo of the stage and site ,Simon Phillips for all the Grateful Dead archival material and Bob Colover for the film footage .

    We have been endeavoring to collect audience or sbd tapes of the performances at this festival , so we can effectively review the performances, provide set lists and band line-ups. The intention is to also display as many personal histories of the festival as possible.

  If you can contribute in any way, with tapes, reviews from the music press, photos or personal histories, please Contact us.
