TotalRock Time: London time
Summer Of Love
Socialise with me
In 1967 a social phenomenon occurred; in America hippies were opposing the Vietnam war and 100,000 flower children were getting ready to wear flowers in their hair to converge in San Francisco. In London, psychedelia was spreading in the clubs and on the pirate radios, yet little know that the summer of love started right here in England! The first major event being the 14 Hour Technicolour Dream at Alexandra, but what was considered to be the first rock festival in the UK happened on Bank Holiday Monday 29th May 1967 in the Lincolnshire town of Spalding, named Barbeque 67! Just weeks later San Francisco held the infamous Monterey Pop Festival!
