Hawkwind plays the final Peoples' Free Festival at Stonehenge during the Summer Solstice and this tiny snippet of film is an amazing yet important document of a time when there was still the free spirit of independence and nonconformity.

This was the twelfth year a concert had been held at Stonehenge. The authorities used force to prevent the festival happening for the 1985 Summer Solstice. If that next festival had taken place it would have made the statute books under ancient charter to become a public (free) festival forever. See more
