Hippiefest 2011 celebrates peace and the power of flowers in a musical love-in showcasing a dream team of rock 'n' roll living legends. The lineup of hit paraders includes Dave Mason, a founding member of Traffic, former Grand Funk Railroad frontman Mark Farner, and Felix Cavaliere’s Rascals, beloved for hits such as “Good Lovin’” and “Groovin’.” Gary Wright, known as The Dream Weaver, key-tars hearts with hypnotizing jams, and Rick Derringer, the tunesmith behind songs such as “Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo,” lights up Hippiefest with fan-friendly thumpers that leave fists pumping, toes tapping, and eardrums grinning with glee.
