John Wilde……This was a brilliant event. Well attended and the line up was excellent. I barely remember it. This poster/advert is a holy relic. Stand out acts. Caravan, Family, Colosseum, Edgar Broughton, Magna Carta, Keef Hartley and the Groundhogs

Mick Mepham…..Buggeration! Missed this too!!!!!!!!!!!! What a bill!! £2 for the weekend …… aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Mick Knights….It was a good one, as were all the other festivals at Plumpton. I remember one band I saw in the blues tent, not for their music, but the name ‘ the interplanetary Tony band’ Also saw the Who there when they did Tommy, but the one stand out act for me was the Bonzo Dog Do Dah band on a hot sunny Saturday afternoon, just prefect.

Patrick Lewis……What a line up.
