Procul [sic] Harum, The Kinks, Soft Machine, The Nice (but see note below), Colosseum, Deep Purple, Ekseption, Chicken Shack, Tyrannosaurus Rex, and Barcley [sic] James Harvest, among others, over two days.
Not a bad line-up at all.
Havlik writes to BtP, January 2010:
I remember, that The Nice wasn't there, because they split up just before the Festival. I remember Ekseption made a surprising act – a really Newcomer-Band at this time. Liked it much. And Arthur Brown got some serious Boo-Boos. Procol Harum did a very good Job – I remember a Newspaper later wrote something like "real progressive part of the Festival".
Ok, sometime later I found myself with my friend standing on the highway, trying to get a lift back home. We were still stoned – oh my dear.
Keep up your work, folks – see you!

The Kinks wasn’t there … but a really good improvised festival with a lot of joints crossing around …

I must have been there but I really don't remember it.
I didn't even know that Cologne was bigger than Düsseldorf and I didn't even know about PJ Frühe pub where they serve Kölsch Bier.
I had a lot to learn.
