Big Thanks to Garry Marsh and Martin Williams for providing us with the pics below.



     Its really interesting how almost every straight press account COMPLETELY failed to mention the giant phallic and mammary adornments on both sides of the stage.  This shot was taken during the Grateful Dead's set. Lower Farm in the background.

    This shot is probably during the Screaming Lord Sutch set, as he apparently set off smoke bombs in the audience.

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.
