More about Steven’s Point:
I think this fest was after a year after the Altamont festival (’69?) & Woodstock hadn’t really become what the movie made it as a legend, so the more prominent point of comparison was Altamont, I think.

Whether the Steven’s Point event all transpired as the rumors ciculated was uncertain. I know the attendance was claimed to be about 50,000. The place was over capacity. No place to camp anywhere near the hill to hear music if you got there late.

They had a feeding tent with brown rice & something or other for people who couldn’t plan ahead to bring food & snacks.

Some people wandering around naked. Well, I remember a couple where the girl was really gorgeous & were talking to people in the food line mostly to mess with them & show how “liberated” & “free” they were.

And also, after getting separated from my friends, spent some time with a small group of mostly guys that invited me to hang until I did find my friends.

They had invited a really cute college girl to go to the event with them, but were disappointed when she wouldn’t get into the free love mood they hoped for.

Most everyone sitting on the ground on a hill leading to the stage during the music to hear well. Gallon glass jug of apparently apple jiuce being passed around, but if you were smart -- didn’t drink from. Could have as easily been urine, or had drugs added as it was passed.
