Bath Festival (1970)

The Bath festival took place at the Royal Bath and West Showground in Shepton Mallet, Somerset, England in 1970.  The promoter of the show was Freddy Bannister and his wife Wendy.  They also promoted the 1969 Bath Festival.  The 1970 festival was larger than the first one with a crowd of 150,000, this made it hard to get to the festival cause of the blocked roads.  It started on the 27th and ended on the 29th of June.  A DJ played records throughout the festival in between acts.  And tents were provided for people to sleep in.  Bands that played the bath were Jefferson Airplane, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Santana, Fairport Convention, It's A Beautiful Day, Hot Tuna, Canned Heat, Fleetwood Mac, The Byrds, Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention, Steppenwolf and others.
