Synopsis

 

Free music festivals embodied the heart and soul of counter- cultural Britain from the late ‘60s to the early ‘80s. Together
under the open sky, radical young people united in a vision of an alternative future, free from mainstream repression. Sharing love, food and ideals, they created a new reality, and danced to music that re ected this reality back at them through a fractured prism of sound. Memory of a Free Festival celebrates this wondrous world of bohemia. Hundreds of previously unpublished period photos capture jazz-loving beatniks, ower power hippies and post-punk indie kids in all their festival nery.

Sam Knee is the author of A Scene In Between (Cicada, 2013) and The Bag I’m In (Cicada, 2015)
