The city banned the use of the Recreation Ground after the furore from the previous year's event. The festival moved to the Bath & West Show ground at Shepton Mallet. Fairport Convention, Pink Floyd and Steppenwolf, Santana, Frank Zappa, Canned Heat, Jeferson Airplane and The Byrds played in front of a crowd of 200,000. Among the audience was a young farmer, Michael Eavis who, the following year, organised his own music festival at his farm in Pilton near Glastonbury.
