Aquarius is generally depicted by a young man pouring water from an urn.
Aquarius is a very ancient constellation and the figure of the Waterbearer has often been associated with the Babylonian deity Ea, the sexless god of waters and streams.
Classical mythology expresses the element of youth and purity inherent in the symbolism of Aquarius by associating the constellation figure with Ganymede, a youth of such beauty, innocence and grace that he was carried up to heaven by an eagle to serve as cup-bearer to Zeus.

 MILESAGO - Festivals - Aquarius Festival of University Arts 1971
Not to be confused with the later and better known 1973 Aquarius Festival at Nimbin NSW, the eight-day "Aquarius Festival of University Arts", held in Canberra in May 1971, is another major arts/music event that has been almost forgotten.
Given that it was evidently a student-organised event, it's seems likely that that the 1971 Aquarius Festival was a precursor to Nimbin 1973 Aquarius festival, which was organised by members of the Australian Union of Students, although this is conjectural.
John Nugent, who attended the Festival primarily because of "the sex and drugs - as well as the rock'n'roll", remembers the determination of the police force to destroy the 'anti-social and subversive' event.

The Aquarius Festival was a ten-day music and cultural festival organised by the Australian Union of Students (AUS) in May, 1973.
The AUS representatives decided the rural village of Nimbin, NSW, Australia would be a good festival site, and negotiated with the Nimbin Progress Association with their plans for a countercultural festival to which thousands of students were expected to come.
The event had a permanent effect on the economy of Nimbin, as many hippie festival participants decided to remain in the district which was previously a dairying region in severe decline.
