Sky River Rock Festival
« on: March 06, 2011, 08:41:27 am »

I've been looking all over and can't find any film of The Sky River Rock Festival and Lighter Than Air Fair
I found one recording of The Grateful Dead on YouTube but no video. I sure would like to see some pictures and see if I can see myself although I might not recognize me. But here's an article

http://www.historylink.org/index.cfm?DisplayPage=output.cfm&File_Id=5425

On August 30, 1968, the Sky River Rock Festival and Lighter Than Air Fair opens a three-day run in a pasture near Sultan, in Snohomish County, Washington. This is one of America's first multi-day, outdoor rock concerts. Among the bands and performers playing at the Sky River Rock Festival are Santana, Big Mama Thornton, James Cotton, Country Joe and the Fish, Richard Pryor, Dino Valenti, Byron Pope, It’s a Beautiful Day, Peanut Butter Conspiracy, Alice Stuart Thomas, the Youngbloods, New Lost City Ramblers, and local groups such as Juggernaut and Easy Chair. On the last day, The Grateful Dead arrive unscheduled.

If anyone finds any video please post it. I'm sure someone was using Sunn but I can't remember much of it  :-D
It was very Far Out and Groovy
