    Three pounds for all that. And people complained it wasnt a free festival.

      My take home wage in 1970 would have been about £8-£9 a week. So that £3’s like £80 quid now.

        Hi, yes I realise in money terms its all relative, though £80 would still be very cheap for a three day festival today. My point was more about these festivals getting the blame for not being free festivals. Such a truly radical ideal would only be possible if everyone involved with the festival, from organisers, to suppliers, to bands, to catering etc, were prepared to be involved for free.
