This summer, Hippiefest returns to celebrate the music and bands of rock's most important decade; an age that would shape the musical landscape for years to come. This year marks the 43rd anniversary of the summer of '68, a year that, according to Time Magazine «changed the world.» That is no less true for 68's music than its politics and social revolution, so come take a trip back in time and experience musical pioneers like Jack Bruce of Cream; Eric Burdon & The Animals; The Turtles featuring Flo & Eddie; Badfinger; Melanie; and Jonathan Edwards.
Tour creator Toby Ludwig explains to Billboard Online: «For years I've been wanting to put out a socially conscious show, because our times are similar to my childhood, which was in the '60s. There are so many concerts out there that don't make a social statement. It's important to be aware of who we are and what we're doing as a country,» Ludwig says. «Sometimes the best way to do it is through a concert.»
Hippiefest features several musicians who performed at the Monterey Pop Festival and the original Woodstock. Hippiefest has been praised as «A taste of Woodstock without the mud and bad acid» (Miami Herald), «guaranteed to get boomers misty-eyed enough to fog up their bifocals» (Newsday). The NY Post simply declared, «No shoes, no shirt, no problem.» A full line of flower power paraphernalia such as tie-dye t-shirts, skirts, caps, bags, stickers and posters will be available throughout the tour. Hippiefest is produced by Toby Ludwig and Ron Hausfeld of Flower Power Concerts, Inc.
