Hi... does anyone remember a rock festival held outside Estacada, Oregon I believe in 1970? It was known as Vortex 1, and I heard it was sponsored by the city of Portland to keep the riff-raff out of the city during the Democratic convention. Lots of great music and fun. I haven't seen or heard anything of it since, just curious if anyone else has.
Thanks, Mike
