Hi Nico,

Thank you for all of your work. It's the best!

I found the footage you mentioned above from West Palm Beach 1969. Your
assumption that it was shot for news footage is correct. I found it from
Associated Press. I find your information amazing! You got the information
perfectly. Nice work as always!

Take care,
Gerard (Exile Stones)

The 1969 Palm Beach International Music and Arts Festival
Michelle Quigley



The setting was Palm Beach International Raceway and the full title of the
weekend was ‘First Annual Palm Beach International Music and Arts Festival’.
It almost never happened due to jittery local government officials and the
aforementioned weather.

Thanksgiving weekend 1969 Palm Beach International Music and Arts Festival
was hailed as the “first annual,” but there never was a second one. The event
was marred by rain, lawsuits and scandals, but is fondly remembered by many
who were there.

The festival drew 40,000 people to the 149-acre Palm Beach International
Speedway, and featured Jefferson Airplane, Sly Stone, the Byrds, Grand Funk
Railroad, Janis Joplin and the Rolling Stones.

Palm Beach has been acknowledged by many as the best festival of ’69 and a
resounding success. All for the princely sum of $20 for three days of great
sounds.

‘We sneaked on stage’

I came from Miami without tickets. We had to sneak in at night through the
surrounding swamp (I had no knowledge of alligators in the swamp), eventually
crossing through a canal (wet and cold). While sneaking in we had to avoid
security and their spotlights, it was like a prison escape movie.

We then walked around the track for hours before discovering my friends and
their tent. A highlight was Janis Joplin, while jamming with Johnny Winter,
telling the crowd what she was gonna do with him back at the hotel (family paper, sigh).

We snuck behind the stage on the last night and ended up where the helicopters
landed. We stood there and greeted Jefferson Airplane, among others. Almost
every band was asking us for speed. Some one-hit band helped us sneak on the
stage as their crew. We ended up sitting in the press bleachers through The
Byrds set (not bad seats for no ticket hippies) before we got caught by
security and sent back out in the cold, wet muck.

After a disappointing set from Jefferson Airplane, we decided to skip the
Stones. Too cold.

If I knew then what I know now about the prevalence of gators in western Palm
Beach County, I'd have no story. Would you cross a canal in the dark?

— Peter Anderson, West Palm Beach




The fire, Tents. Turkey with all the Trimmings too!

I remember the festival pretty well. I was part of a group, not hippies, but
peace and love and all that. There were about 20 of us, great friends all, both
girls and guys.

When I heard about the festival I went with my good friend Steve Harrell to
scout out a campsite. He had an old station wagon that we filled to the brim
with dry firewood and the girls cooked two giant turkeys with all the
trimmings. When the festival started we went to the site I picked and set up 3
tents and tarps.

We parked Steve's wagon next to the campsite so we could have easy access to
the firewood. Turns out it rained the whole time and flooded the grounds. Our
campsite was one of the few, if not only, dry sites in the whole area.

On top of that we had a fire going 24/7, all the turkey and trimmings, and the
tents. Plus I was in the concrete business so had rubber boots for everyone to
wear, to keep their feet dry. I had people staying there the whole time that I
never knew. When it was over, not one stick of firewood remained, nor even a
crumb of food. It was a grand experience, great fun for all!

‘People gave me hugs to keep warm’

I was just 15 years-old that Thanksgiving. I still can't believe my mom let me
go! Fortunately, my older cousins and their friends were coming down from
Jacksonville to attend the festival. They could only go if they stayed with us.


My mom had one condition and that was for us to come home at least once to
check in and shower. We did and lucky for me I was able to grab an old raccoon
coat for the weather had turned cold and rainy. People were continuously coming
up to me with hugs to get warm. The music was fantastic and the whole festival
was quite the experience I'll never forget! Wish I had pictures!

— Paulette Morin McNally, Atlantic Beach (formerly of Lantana)



‘My first hit of Orange Sunshine’

I was there with my friend Jojo and her uncle. We were 13 and he was 26. He was
our chaperone but we didn't see him much. I remember the rain and cold, and
that we were so much better off than a lot of people.

King Crimson was awesome. Jefferson Airplane was great, when they were still in
an airplane. Johnny and Edgar Winter. The Rolling Stones and Iron Butterfly.


My first hit of Orange Sunshine...I traded bananas for Purple Blotter from
some guys that just got back from Vietnam. I could go on forever. And only 13
years old! Sometimes I can't believe it myself.

— Carol Lee, West Palm Beach



‘The OD tents were pretty much empty’

I was in my junior year of high school and three of my buddies bought a Kharman
Ghia convertible for $45. The four of us painted the car with silver Derusto
spray paint…soon as it was dry we were on our way.

Everyone was friendly. The bikers had the best food and the music was
incredible. The first night with bands like King Crimson, Sweetwater, Sly,
Johnny Winter, Chambers Brothers blew everyone’s minds. After that night I
decided I would not go to seminary school.

There were no hard drugs to speak of…it was basically weed, hash, mushrooms,
mescaline, and acid. It was all good, no weapons, no fighting, the OD tents
were pretty much empty. A lot of the musicians would cruise around the
campsites, they were just as stoked as we were.

Then-Palm Beach County Sheriff Bill Heidtman vowed to make life miserable
for the free-loving, pot-smoking, anti-establishment youngsters who were
coming to the Palm Beach Pop Festival. He threatened to herd alligators toward
the crowd, gathered on a grassy field at the Palm Beach International Raceway.
And he promised to dig out fire ant colonies and relocate them at the venue.
