The Hawkwind At Stonehenge

Veterans of the free festivals scene, idols for different generations of freaks, the Hawkwind couldn't be missing from the Stonehenge festival of 1984, the same on which Roy Harper played too, to celebrate the summer solstice. They played on the night of June 20 and in the morning after, the second clip also shows an evocative footage of the crowd in the stone circle by the early light of the day.
In that period the former member Nik Turner, the guy with the weird costume and make-up who plays the saxophone, had rejoined the band for a while, and this make the concert even more interesting.
A part of the performance can be heard on a CD called This Is Hawkwind, Do Not Panic, and seen on a VHS. In 2004, for the 20th anniversary, a DVD with the whole concert has been released.
You know what to expect from the Hawkwind on stage, their space-rock may be predictable but they are always guaranteed to blow your mind.
