(Classic Rock) The owner of the Knebworth estate is hoping to stage a big-name concert in 2014 to mark the 40th anniversary of the Hertfordshire landmark's first-ever music event. And Henry Lytton-Cobbold says he's also anticipating the return of the Sonisphere festival after a two-year absence.

The opening event in 1974 was billed as The Bucolic Frolic and saw 60,000 people entertained by the Allman Brothers Band, Van Morrison, the Doobie Brothers, the Mahavishnu Orchestra, the Sensational Alex Harvey Band and Tim Buckley.

Pink Floyd played to 80,000 the following year, followed later by world-class acts including the Rolling Stones, Genesis, Frank Zappa, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, and Queen's last show with Freddie Mercury. The Red Hot Chili Peppers appeared last year. more on this story
