Arts Festival '71
August 15th 20th
At Massey University and in Palmerston North nearly ever worthwhile venue in town is already booked.
Accomodation will be mainly billets in flats. The idea of using large tents is very unlikely now. There is enough billets in the town where many activities will be in any case, and in the event of bad weather, the tents could become swamps. A/f handbook will be in a lift-out section of Chaff Massey's Student newspaper.
Blues/Rock. About 20 Rock Groups will participate and large capacity venues are available.
Film Programme - the theme is heavy. Films include The Incident, The Boston Strangler, Beach Red. In Cold Blood, The Naked Prey, Underground movies from Australia and New Zealand and supporting lectures.
