ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The toilets backed up, people were ripped off, fights broke out and the bands wanted their money, but the promoter Bert Gartner didn’t have any money, or not enough, largely because he’d only sold 15,000 tickets and most of those people had gone by the third day, sick of the bad weather, fighting and sodden conditions.

The promoter managed to leave by helicopter, narrowly avoiding being lynched by the stage crew and sound engineers, none of whom got paid.

This whole event lost so much money and was such a sour, horrible experience for many, that it deterred anyone else from putting a similar event in the region for years.
