Did anyone else out there go to the "Bardney folk festival"
in Lincolnshire in 1971 or was it 72?
Or is it a figment of my imagination?
30+ plus years on I have never met anyone who has even heard of it!
It was aq big crowd for those days - or was it in my mind?

Yes! I was there in the summer of 1971---a few weeks after the more celebrated, but less well-attended, Glastonbury Fayre. The headliners were the Byrds, who were supposed to play an acoustic set, but actually went electric. James Taylor was good. So were the Incredible String Band. Steeleye Pan was on the bill--as were Sonny Terry and Brownie Mcgee. The crowd was enormous, with lots of Americans in attendance.

My 20th birthday - fantastic. I loved the awful sight of a stoned man slipping into a huge trench of shit and rain almost as much as the artists I came to see from Scarborough, where I was DJ at The Penthouse for 10 years of amazing rock and folk legends. Saw JT in Switzerland earlier this year - good as ever

I was there, they ran a special train from London, returning from Lincoln in the wee small hours. There only appeared to be one bus connecting, which I managed to get on and rode an almost empty train back to London. I have a couple of photos somewhere. It was an incredible line-up of just about everybody I wanted to see. The contrasts between Steeleye Span or the Byrds with the quiet sets of James Taylor and Tom Paxton around dusk was stunning.
It was a huge crowd and there were sections where you didn't need to smoke your own. It became a legendary event for those who were there. Thanks for the reminder.

I was there, James Taylor was fantastic as was BStM. It was my first festival I think a live album exists with a photograph of the crowd? I remember some girls stripped off their tops. I was a student at the Grimsby College of technology. It was about the time our student union booked Elton John to appear at the Cleethorpes Winter Gardens, His contract stipulated a grand piano - tuned to concert pitch. His fee? £200. What a great time. The University of Kent at Canterbury awaited me. Bardney was brilliant. The early Cambridge folk festivals were brilliant too.

I was there too-the most amazing line up ever!! I'll never forget the Byrdsplaying just as the sun was going down. I have photos of the Byrds and Robin Williamson back stage taken through a hole in the fence! I remember the fence around the toilets coming down-ugh!
I stayed in Lincoln over night and got the train back to Manchester the next day and found we were sharing it with The Incredible String Band as far as Sheffield awesome!
Will never forget my first festival😁

Yes I was at the Lincoln Folk Festival with a groups of friends from Reading in Berkshire. We travelled up for the day. Remember vividly the event and very glad I was there to enjoy the unique event.

My pal and me hitchhiked down from Glasgow,a tad too earlier than expected as we got too many lifts far too soon.We had 5 days to spare before the day.We hung around Lincoln and had a great time well looked after by the local people.A brilliant festival and crowd sadly my pal is no longer with me but I still have the great memories that will stay with me for ever.

Don't Forget To Boogie.
