The Summer of Love waving from the American Westcoast to Belgium and the hippie culture breaks through worldwide. Slogans like 'Flower Power' and 'Peace & Love' are widely present. Jimi Hendrix, The Doors and The Beatles do with their "All you need is love" another level top psychedelics. But the soundtrack for the Summer of Love is provided by Scott McKenzie's "(If you're going to) San Francisco" and the British with Procol Harum "A Whiter Shade of Pale". And let it be like the last band they expect in Bilzen as the absolute headliner.

The festival becomes at no time 'the place to be' and nowhere else are pop and rock bands, protest singers, jazz and blues artists on the same stage. Especially the poster Friday lures many people, Armand and Boudewijn de Groot are popular, but everyone wants to see Procol Harum. The band has in Bilzen his first live concert ever. Reactions are mixed afterwards: grandiose as the one about a flop screamed as the other. The quality in Bilzen is superb, there are just too many artists. However, the public puts up with it all, even the ballet and cabaret groups (including Herman Van Veen) that appear constantly in the city center, had lot of attention.
