    My first was Cassington free party in 1991. I was 16 years old and lived about 5 miles away and could hear the beat so a group of us got a lift over, followed the sound of the music and stumbled across this awesome set up in a field.Strangely, my memories of the event are a bit hazy for some reason.

    Surprised I never answered this previously, but it was Stonehenge '84 when I was 16 years old -- a major defining point in my life

    Reading, about 1989. It was horrid. I'd dyed my hair pink with food colouring; it rained all weekend so I ended up pink and streaky all over, including my contact lenses. The rose-tinted haze didn't help. I got pissed on thunderbird, felt sick, spent most of my time in my tent.

    Didn't give up though. Think the next one was Strawberry Fair, then Glastonbury, probably 1990 - the last year when you could get in free through the Travellers' Field. Wow. Never looked back

    Pentrich Rock & Blues festival late 80s or thereabouts. Some version of Hawkwind were on if my memory doesn't fail me but that doesn't really narrow the date down much.
