Setting up camp in a VW bug at the 2nd Atlanta Pop Festival, 1970

“The music was incredible, the crowd awesome, and the vibe was like nothing I had ever experience up until then or after. It was the solidarity of being with others who believed that music could change the world -- a very "heady" exercise. I rode on car hoods and car roofs back and forth to the only bathroom we knew of located across I75 at a 2 story motel. Remember seeing 10 or so Georgia Highway Patrol men lined up on the side of one of the on-ramps -- all they could do was watch us ride by -- there were too many of us to enforce anything -- we were a nation -- a very empowering moment. Lots of naked (or half-naked) people around, too -- anything went.” … Jennie B. from Sarasota
