The crowd at Craigton Park near St Andrews, Scotland in July `88 was much smaller than this. This was to do with the terrible weather over that whole weekend/ actual set up and size of venue. Part of an event called Fife Aid an ecological awareness raising festival. Marillion headlined the Saturday night, going onstage after Runrig. Many other acts appeared such as Van Morrison, John Martyn and John Wetton ( King Crimson, Roxy Music, UK, Asia etc. ).
I live not far from Craigton Park. My brother, his friend and myself camped over that weekend at the festival. It missed out on recognition as a festival when TV broadcasting for the event was pulled a matter of days before. Despite many name artists being on the bill, that and adverse weather meant it was not a great success.
