Midsummer High Weekend was the first major free rock concert in the UK and was held at Hyde Park, London.[1] On Saturday 29 June 1968, Pink Floyd was the first band to play, alongside the T-Rex, Jethro Tull, and Roy Harper. The concert was held to coincide with the release of Pink Floyd's second album, A Saucerful of Secrets. Most of the material played was from this album, with only one piece from their previous, Syd Barrett-led, début album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. Roy Harper reportedly played the cymbals on A Saucerful of Secrets[citation needed].
