Name of the festival

“Stone Free” is a song written by Jimi Hendrix and the second song recorded by the Jimi Hendrix Experience. It has been described as a “counterculture anthem, with its lyrics praising the footloose and fancy-free life”, which reflected Hendrix’s restless lifestyle.

Instrumentally, the song has a strong rhythmic drive provided by drummer Mitch Mitchell with harmonic support by bassist Noel Redding. “Stone Free” was issued on December 16, 1966, as the B-side of the Experience’s first UK single “Hey Joe” and later included on the Smash Hits compilation album.
