Hippies Reliving Past Glory

(PR) The Summer Of Love 40th Anniversary Concert will take place on Sunday, September 2, 2007, in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park between 10AM and 6PM. The concert will be a free event celebrating both the music inspired by the 1967 Summer Of Love and the consciousness raising efforts of the time. The organization securing the permit, the non-profit Council of Light, includes members of the original Family Dog, original Grateful Dead management, FM Radio programmers, media members and many of the era's poster artists.

Former Family Dog partner and longtime Chet Helms associate Boots Hughston is serving as coordinator. Former Grateful Dead manager Rock Scully, along with former president of CTI Records and manager for Jesse Colin Young, David Bean, are organizing bands, licenses and sponsors*. The promoters intend to utilize the best in concert production for the musicians involved, from sound, to stage, to travel and lodging. While noted musicians from the era will be featured, organizers welcome bands from the past four decades inspired by the San Francisco music scene of the 60's. It is anticipated that there will be worldwide media coverage with live broadcast and streaming possibilities. [*because we know the summer of love was all about corporate sponsorships!]
