Nice one t150. We actually had Hawkwind Hosting
(2010) the first festival on the 1970 site since that original. As a Hawkfest, it was a 700 peeps psychedelic dream. The only festival held on the same land. Twas almost religious, if it weren't for the drink and drugs.
When I read what I wrote, it seemed confusing, so what was intended is that was a Hawkwind gathering on the original festival (1970) site at Afton, the one and only time it has been used since, just happened to be Hawkwind's 40th anniversary as well.
The irony was that Hawkwind weren't invited to play at the festival, instead they played for free just outside the gate, as their protest against profiteering in music.
So it was lovely that 40 years later they took it as their own. Fortunately, only Hawkfreaks and locals knew about it, so it was a beautiful and peaceful gathering, no commerce or [***].
It wasn't a festival, just the nicest easy group of chilled ones. Even Lemmy made a guest appearance because of the occasion, guess what he sang with them.
