Ian Abrahams and Bridget Wishart - Festivalized
This is my description text 1. It can support html.

This long awaited and remarkable book is arguably one of the most important that we have ever published.

The British free festival movement, and the way that it was viciously quashed by successive waves of The Establishment is a story that many have skirted around, but until now no one has done justice to. Ian and Bridget’s extraordinary book is an oral history of these turbulent times and deserves to be seen in the same illustrious light as Days In The Life: Voices from the English Underground, 1961-71 by Jonathan Green.

Ian and Bridget have done a great service to music lovers and social historians alike.


[Festivalized] vividly portrays the highs, lows, conflicts and achievements of this unique countercultural movement. An honest, unflinching portrait of this key period of social history. (Shindig!) ***** 

A highly enlightening read that evokes wistful memories of more carefree times. You can almost smell the wood smoke as the chillum’s passed round the campfire. (Vive Le Rock) 8/10  
A measured, superbly put together, moving, funny, serious, thought-provoking account of a wonderful time in the alternative culture of our country. It deserves to be recognised as a historical document. (Terrascope)
Festivalized is an exceptionally well documented research about the almost forgotten way of life and its social and cultural impact on today’s society. (It’s Psychedelic Baby)
