Item Details

"The 1970 Vortex I festival transformed a rural state park into a clothing-optional 'hippie zoo'. But this was no ordinary rock fest. The Portland business community paid for it. The Republican governor promoted it. Vortex was a political experiment - a bold and risky venture designed to prevent a catastrophic collision between police and anti-war protesters. In a time of high tensions, Vortex was a 'far-out' Oregon solution" --Container.
