Bickershaw Festival, May 4th 1972

I was randomly searching blogs for information on the tiny village I live in when I discovered several pages devoted to something called the 'Bickershaw Festival.' 34 years ago thousands of people converged on wasteland just across the road. The tour rider is pretty impressive for the day and includes the Grateful Dead. There are several accounts and some great photos that folks have put up on the Internet.

How cool.
