The 70s was a period in Australian Rock Music when the industry showcased its very best at the annual Sunbury music festival. On each Australia day weekend from 1972-1975, 35,000 plus people would travel to a picturesque site 30 minutes from Melbourne, in anticipation of witnessing some of the greatest performance of our own rock bands. For those who attended it was an event not to be missed and still considered today to be the most successful rock music festival of its kind held in Australia. This film serves as a reminder of that first festival in 1972, and captures the excitement of what the festival was all about : "to have a good time".
Sit back, relax, crank up the volume, and get ready to stroll down memory lane with Sunbury.
