Coastal View on Teesside’s Music Scene in ’68 & ’71


Coastal View & Moor News is a monthly paper for the Redcar, East Cleveland and North Yorkshire Moors area. Its enigmatic columnist Hollie Bush contacted me drawing my attention to articles written in the March and April editions about one successful and one aborted music festival in the 60s and 70s.

In the March edition Hollie writes of Teespop 68, a festival organised by John McCoy and headlined by Traffic. Read the column on page 28 of issue 21 here.

In April’s edition Hollie tells of a rather more chaotic affair in 1971 involving the Edgar Broughton Band, a flatbed truck and Teesside Constabulary.. page 34 here.
