    I was at this Festival. Hendrix was fantastic. I was only 14 at? the the time and slept the Saturday night in a field with no sleeping bag or anything. It poured with rain during the night and me and my mate got well and truly soaked and we were hungry and filthy but somehow none of that mattered as it was such a great event.
