The Picnic At Blackbushe Aerodrome

Blackbushe airport                 Blackbushe airport
Blackbushe Aerodrome is an operational general aviation airport
located in the South of England, at Camberley,county of Hampshire.

    "Reputedly the biggest ever audience for Bob Dylan (although Isle Of Wight 1969 would have been close in the running stakes), THE PICNIC AT BLACKBUSHE was also one of the biggest ever events staged by promoter Harvey Goldsmith (of Crystal Palace Garden Party fame). This time round Goldsmith continued the 'English Country garden' theme he had adopted for Crystal palace and applied it to Blackbushe.
   Unfortunately the Aerodrome was not anywhere near as picturesque as the verdant surroundings of Crystal Palace, it was, like almost all aerodromes, flat and featureless, and when the 200,000 plus punters had managed to cram themselves into its confines, if you were up the back there wasn't a great deal to see really, as there were no video screens".
