Description

This legendary festival was held in the Recreation Ground. 7,000 tickets were printed but more than 30,000 music fans attended the two day event. Led Zeppelin, 10 Years After and Fleetwood Mac performed. After the event, letter flooded into the Chronicle as locals complained about people sleeping rough on the streets and in shop doorways, milk bottle thefts from doorsteps and long-haired men.
