Waiting for The Rolling Stones - Knebworth Fair 1976
Waiting for The Rolling Stones - Knebworth Fair 1976
The 3rd one day festival held in the grounds of Knebworth House was headlined by The Rolling Stones. A far more professional stage than the year before, see LinkExternal link. It was in the shape of a giant mouth and tongue (modelled on the Stones logo which allowed Jagger to parade himself nicely). Inflation was taking hold with ticket prices rising to 4.25 for the whole day from 2.75 a year earlier. At this point in my early years as a music fan I had seen The Rolling Stones twice for a total of 4.25 having also seen the free concert in Hyde Park in 1969 - starts to make Glastonbury 2013 look mighty expensive at 205.
