In 1970 Pink Floyd made an appearance at the Bath Festival of Blues and Progressive Music. Not yet the super stars they were later to become they were only listed fourth on the bill on the Saturday. Because of traffic jams, which delayed many of the bands, Pink Floyd eventually appeared at 2a.m. on Sunday morning blowing away the 150,000 audience when they premiered the Amazing Pudding, later to be known as Atom Heart Mother
1975 was the year Pink Floyd headlined At Knebworth,complete with World War II spitfires flying low behind the stage, as they started their set.
Roy Harper appeared backstage on a horse and was most upset when he wasn't allowed to ride it on to the stage, due to the 16' drop.
Quadrophonic sound was installed, probably the first time at any outdoor event.
Booked after the poster was printed the late Graham Chapman of Monty Python's Flying Circus made various silly appearances throughout the day.
The complete programme included Pink Floyd, the Steve Miller Band, Captain Beefheart's Magic Band, Roy Harper and Trigger and Linda Lewis.
The 1978 Knebworth festival saw Genesis headline a programme that also consisted of Jefferson Airplane making their first ever appearance without Grace Slick, Tom Petty and the Heart Breakers, Devo, Brand X and The Atlantic Rhythm Section.
