addition: VIDEO STILLS

the only filmed footage known to exist of the pop festival appears to be the news flash from an english teevee program, broadcast soon after the happening (many of the acts came from that island). in not even two minutes we get a glance of julie driscoll arriving at the sport palace and see a tiny piece of the performance by captain beefheart and the magic band. that second part was included in the bbc documentary 'the artist formerly known as captain beefheart' which is the source of the stills made by dave lang.
