Amougies Pop & Jazz Festival Belgium 69

This was the infamous Amougies festival organised (disorganised would be the better word) by those Byg records crooks in the wake of their recording sessions from the summer of 1969. The correct name for the affair was
Le Festival Actuel.
Thius was scheduled to be held in Paris but the organisers could not get the authorisation to have it in Paris or in the Paris area. The event was moved to Amougies, in Belgium, just north of the French border.
Was there for the first three days. This was held under a huge tent. I remember rain falling practically all the time. You'd better have the right boots to survive in the mud.
