Laurel Pop Festival

Laurel Raceway, Laurel, Maryland
July 11-12, 1969
Nice, small festival that went off without a hitch. About 15,000 attended.
Led Zeppelin's power was cut-off (too dang loud) and the Saturday show was delayed two hours due to rain. It was one of the last appearances of the Jeff Beck Group, as they broke up after the next show (Singer Bowl in NYC on 7/13).
