Knebworth Pop Festival 1976

4 mins United Kingdom

Topping the bill at Knebworth in the long hot summer of '76, the Rolling Stones, were attracting a diverse crowd arriving to set up camp on the sun drenched estate. Anglia News cameras caught up with some of the fans who were making the most of the hot weather - some more than others! The landlord of the Lytton Arms was also hoping for a good festival having upped his beer and wine stocks to meet demand.

This was the third year of the Knebworth Festival with the Rolling Stones and other bands such as 10cc and Lynyrd Skynyrd attracting 120,000 fans.

The East Anglian Film Archive, the first and largest Regional Film Archive in England, was established in 1976. Since 1984, EAFA has been owned and operated by the University of East Anglia, Norwich (UEA), to support research and work to preserve our moving image heritage. More than 250 hours are freely available online as examples of the wide range of film which attracts interest the world over.
