I was at Mar Y Sol, I remember bits and pieces of it. It was hot and sunny as PR always is and the weed was rampant...so was the acid. I had been visiting a friend in Rincon when I heard about the festival and the timing was good for me. My buddy and I traveled to Mar Y Sol with a mosquito net tent (very valuable) and some food, a bag of clothes, etc. We had been in PR for a week and we were "seasoned" with tan skin, a bit of Español and some confidence with the culture. It made it easier for us. I don't think we ever bought a ticket...we just walked in.
I'll never forget Alice Cooper coming onstage, incredibly loud, with tall palms against the moonlit sky. The Allman Bros were great....when I returned to Miami Greg Allman was on the plane. I also remember BB King at his best. The ground was a mess but the music was great. I must have left early because i don't remember much more. The weed didn't help.

Great website! Thanks for keeping the memory alive.
