1974 saw the first Knebworth Festival take place in the superb grounds of Knebworth House.

"...Van Morrison's contract contained a clause stating that he could terminate his performance if he did not like the look of the audience. In the event we couldn't get him off stage he was having such a good time..." Freddy Bannister (Promoter)
