Abstract

From Monterey (1967) to the Isle of Wight (1968-1970) to Woodstock (1969)—as well as the vital subsequently-released documentary films of some of these key events—festivals were claimed as gatherings of the alternative tribes. Here the exported dominance of the American model of the counterculture is evaluated, against the backdrop of anti-American protest around the Vietnam War. Also: festival as consumerism, festival as commercial ‘rock’ event (Reading).
