Crowd Numbers[edit]

I don't know if this can really be accurate, as AIUI, numbers for large events such as this are 'massaged' for insurance purposes. I believe about 200,000 people were at the 1986 Queen concert (including me!), and at the time it broke a record for the largest open-air festival. DavidFarmbrough (talk) 05:00, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

I went to Wild in the Country 2007 and I'm pretty sure 2ManyDJs didn't turn up, they certainly weren't there in the second tent when they were meant to be playing before Tiga. Can anyone verify this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Domh (talkcontribs) 00:07, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

line-up ordering[edit]

Wouldn't it make more sense to order bands by appearance time instead of alphabetically?

E.g. Belouis Some, Big Country, Queen, Status Quo should read Belouis Some, Big Country, Status Quo, Queen.

The Queen concert is also notable because, very sadly, a fan died at the concert.

Concerts at Knebworth HouseKnebworth Festival – It's the Knebworth Festival, so why not call it that? --Relisted. Armbrust The Homunculus 08:23, 13 June 2014 (UTC) Evangp (talk) 07:17, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

  • Oppose Not all of the concerts have been billed as the Knebwroth Festival (Sonisphere, for one). If anything, this article should be titled List of concerts at Knebworth House. Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 08:48, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Support - It is now the contemporary name of the concert/ festival and wikipedia should reflect this. IJA (talk) 11:04, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Support - As the above comment states, it's indeed the contemporary name. Evangp (talk) 13:09, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose per Lugnuts. Most of the concerts were not called "Knebworth Festival". Armbrust The Homunculus 09:11, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Agree with Lugnuts and Armbrust. I don't think a move to "Knebworth Festival" would accurately reflect the scope of the article. Jenks24 (talk) 11:23, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
