Newspapers and magazines were largely positive in their reporting of the 1973 Great Ngaruawahia Music Festival, although those of a tabloid bent tended to focus on the nudity rather than the festival itself. Other issues covered included the potential dangers of drug use and the eventual liquidation of the festival company.
