I was there on the 4th of August '79 and the set was awesome - it's one of those occasions in youre life that you'll never forget - myself and my girlfriend travelled down to Knebworth from Morecambe on a rented mini-bus and attempted to pitch tent on one of the designated sites for the festival on the Friday night. The passengers (myself included - try drinking a bottle of sherry in an hour!!) on the mini-bus had been drinking fairly seriously all the way from Morecambe to Stevenage, so it was no major surprise that when it came tme to erect the frame tents, we didn't have the first clue as to how to go about it!!
Suffice tosay that the tents never were erected (thankfully it was a dry weekend!) and I ended up kipping in one of the tent bags and my girlfriend kipped on the mini-bus, fending off unnawanted attention from one of our more unsoficicticated male members). The concert itself was awesome - I'd downed a bottle of Teachers during the afternoon and when Zeppelin came on it was absolutely crazy - magical set!!
