There's a few Hippies there, it always seems to be wet and muddy at those events.

This has been well documented on here. But looking now, it still brings back memories of that brilliant Saturday night. I can still smell the joss, wood smoke, and the grass. It was damp grass, by the way...Cos it peed down for most of the time. Ha...

Subculture Alex's? Very harsh. Sorry it wasn't your scene but it was mine. Special time for me in my life. The skinheads hated us but the bikers accepted us, fantastic people the bikers. We went to their parties and we to theirs. We had a special time harming no one. Can anyone say they were mugged by a hippie? But saying that I respect your view that it was not your scene.

My late husband Dave Foster from Roby Mill went to this. Wish I could have gone but wasn't old enough at the time
