      Review from Music Now.

             I arrived at the site on Sunday in time to see Quintessence play a very good set , at one stage they got the audience to stand up and clap their hands and enjoy their right to freedom. They achieved some sort of spiritual link with their audience. That was their intention .They are a fascinating band . Although it was only early in the afternoon the crowd was big and the atmosphere lively.

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.
