Hi all,
regarding the Tanelorn festival in 1981,
I was there!
I was 10 years old. My parents were into the whole post hippie festival
I found this info:

In October 1981, the three-day Tanelorn Festival of Transition (held near
Stroud, NSW) drew 28 000 fans but still lost money. As well as featuring
Redgum, The Church, Moving Pictures, Kevin Borich Express, Men at Work,
Sunnyboys, Broderick Smith's Big Combo, Midnight Oil and Split Enz, the
festival saw the return of Billy Thorpe, then based in the USA.

I remember sitting on my dad's shoulders during the oils and steam was
pouring off Pete's head. I also remember seeing Split Enz and Mi-sex.
