These pictures were mostly taken very early in the check (or even before it actually started). At that time Procol were mostly sorting out all the usual technical things, rather than playing. The band was in very good mood, even though they came one hour early (due to an error by the festival management), and nothing was ready, so they just had to hang around and wait.
