The 2-day Laurel Pop Festival was a one-time event.  Led Zeppelin was the closing act on the first day, with Buddy Guy, Al Kooper, Jethro Tull, Johnny Winter and Edwin Hawkins Singers (Oh, Happy Day) having performed before them. The next day's lineup was Jeff Beck, Ten Years After, Sly and the Family Stone, The Mothers of Invention, Savoy Brown and Guess Who. 

Led Zeppelin was in the middle of their first US tour, and were considered the headliner act for the first night of the festival.  According to one report, the power was cut off during Led Zeppelin's performance and Robert Plant just kept singing until the power came back on.  More photos of this festival.
