Nicky Garratt refers to this fetival in his excellent 'U.K.Subs - The Early Years' on the New Red Archives website:
"After another ‘Music Machine’ and Lyceum show, we played the 2 day Loch Lomond festival in front of 35,000 people (The Largest rock festival ever held in Scotland to that date). Headlining were ‘The Stranglers’ with ‘The Boomtown Rats’ and ‘The Buzzcocks’. We played just as it was getting dark with minimal P.A. and lights. By the time ‘The Stranglers’ went on it was dark and their light show and sound system was in it’s full glory including flares dropped by helicopter. However, we still managed to make a lot of new fans."
