Disorganized, with second-rate groups. The Turtles were simply embarrassing. Negron of Three Dog Night could have been a lot better. He was only half-hearted and had nothing of interest to say. This line-up has obviously not sold in the past (and should not be attempted in the future), because it was the smallest crowd I have ever seen at Wolf Trap.

Dubbed as the concert for peace and love with psychedelic colors, peace signs, and flowers to match, Hippiefest brings a night filled with the new and old sounds of a legendary lineup:
Hailed as a Cream successor band by Allmusic.com and formed from a garage band called the Vagrants, Mountain formed in 1969 and released progressive rock hits “Theme from an Imaginary Western” and “Never in My Life.”
Celebrated vocalist Chuck Negron had a successful history in the ’60s and ’70s with his former band Three Dog Night, producing 21 hit singles including “Mama Told Me (Not to Come)” and “Black and White.”
Known for their harmonic vocals and feel-good songs, Flo & Eddie of the Turtles topped the late-’60s with the popular “Happy Together” and “Ellenore,” winning over a broad fan base throughout their career with their quirky style and pop-rock sound.
The blue-eyed soul group of the ’60s, Felix Cavaliere’s Rascals overtook the music scene with their original pop, psychedelic, and jazz influenced hits “Good Lovin’,” “Groovin’,” and “A Girl Like You.”
A pop-rock music icon, British band Badfinger saw great success in both the U.K. and in the United States with hits such as “No Matter What,” “Day After Day,” and “Come and Get It.”
