Bringing back the peace, harmony and festivity of the original 1967 Summer of Love, Hippiefest aims to rekindle the spirit once more. The music festival has promoted free-ranging music from independent and commercially acclaimed musicians on a stage that tries to replicate the 60s counterculture hippie movement. Although the hippie ideals of liberal drug use, communal living and free love can hardly be expressed in music festivals nowadays in the absence of a concerted movement, Hippiefest’s emphasis on liberating rock n roll, folk, and country music is a celebration of those ideas. Now in its sixth year, Hippiefest is a raging phenomenon on the local festival scene and has roped in wonderful contemporary musicians every year. This summer sees crafty contemporary musicians from the golden 60s era like Dave Mason and Felix Cavaliere’s Rascals set the stages on fire in a ten week tour across the country. The air will be heavy with nostalgia as fans with Hippiefest Tickets flock to arenas to catch the voices of freedom.
Hippiefest offers music in the genres of pop and rock n roll from artists who played with the greats and dominated lineups in the 60s hippie movement. Indeed, any mention of Hippiefest is inextricably linked to 1967’s Summer of Love, as it is popularly known. The social phenomenon revolved around the "beatniks", members of the Beat Generation who settled around New York’s Greenwich Village and San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district. They expressed openly the hippie ideals of communal living, sexual freedom, achieving higher states of consciousness (albeit with widespread use of psychedelic drugs), eclectic fashion sense including wearing flowers and peaceful music en masse. 1967 saw around 100,000 people move into San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district, many of them were students on spring break and the movement boiled over into cities like Philadelphia, Chicago, Washington, New York, and Seattle.
The cultural utopia in "Hashbury" attracted people to join in the musical harmony and the summer’s Monterey Pop Festival at nearby Monterey Fields was a huge hit. Popular acts like ‘Jimi Hendrix’, ‘The Who’, ‘Janis Joplin’, ‘Jefferson Airplane’ and ‘Ravi Shankar’ played out to over 90,000 attendees on Sunday peak-time. By October, the Summer of Love dissipated as drug abuse, crime, homelessness, and food shortages in the communes threatened people’s lives. Yet its significance was enormous, and various attempts at recreating the liberating musical atmosphere were unsuccessful till 2006’s Hippiefest, which featured artists like Melanie and Denny Laine and was organized by 21st Century Artists Inc. founder Toby Ludwig. Droves of hippies turned up in support of the first concert in New York’s Brookhaven Amphitheater, and Hippiefest has been successfully running in the years since.
This year’s Hippiefest lineup features stellar names like Dave Mason, the English guitarist of ‘Traffic’ and "Feelin’ Alright" fame. Mason worked with the likes of Michael Jackson, George Harrison, Hendrix and Eric Clapton during his distinguished career, also recording the first version of "All Along the Watchtower" with Hendrix. Former Grand Funk Railroad singer, songwriter and guitarist Mark Farner rolls back the years of smash hits "We’re An American Band" (#1) and "I’m Your Captain". Rick Derringer is set to belt out his brilliant anthems like "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo", which is still a rock classic. ‘Felix Cavaliere’ and ‘The Rascals’ will leave no stone unturned to entertain crowds that have grown up to a staple diet of his #1 hits "Good Lovin’", "Groovin" and "People Got To Be Free". Gary Wright is also appearing at Hippiefest 2011, with his memorable platinum selling song "Dream Weaver" enjoying a renaissance after featuring in Toy Story 3.
The first annual Hippiefest took place in 2006, kicking off from Brookhaven Amphitheater in Farmingville, New York. Original Woodstock MC Wavy Gravy took charge of proceedings, introducing a star-studded lineup of Denny Laine, hippie queen Melanie, anti-war country artist Joe McDonald, Janis Ian and Hall of Famers Lovin’ Spoonful. Fans with 2007 Hippiefest Tickets were treated to ‘The Turtles’ featuring Flo and Eddie, Mountain and The Zombies, while legends like Eric Burdon of ‘The Animals’ and Jack Bruce of ambitious band ‘Cream’ brought back direct experiences from 1967 in the third edition. 2009 and 2010 featured Bruce again as headliner, and he was joined in the latter by War and Rare Earth. Hippiefest 2011 starts off from San Diego and LA.
Hippiefest has evolved into a socially conscious musical experience. In an age where intolerance is breeding global contempt, purchase of Hippiefest tickets is an escape to embrace peace and compassion in a conducive surrounding.
