Ruisrock 2004 Festival

Many, many thanks to Antero for the photos and video clips on this page.  They portray Hawkwind's
performance at the Ruisrock 2004 Festival, near Turku, Finland, on 10th July 2004.  Ruisrock has been
going since 1970 which makes it the oldest rock festival there is!  (Along with one they have in the
Netherlands...)
Apparently, the dancers (above &; below right)
were Finnish
This was Hawkwind's first ever visit to Finland and by all accounts the gig was fantastic, with Dave, Alan &
Richard playing a brilliant set and apparently enjoying themselves greatly.  Phil Caivano (guitarist from
Monster Magnet) played on The Right Stuff, Brainstorm, Psychedelic Warlords and Silver Machine., and
Lemmy joined them for SIlver Machine only: the final song of the encore.
Dave looked very dapper in this dark ensemble...not
his usual sort of thing.  Nice to see the Westone back,
as well
