The first half indicates the stage and audience area . Its not terribly obvious , but the audience area is to the left of the page and the line just  in front of the stage indicates the press area, which was cordoned off with a metal barrier that was pretty ineffectual. . By Sunday night this had more or less ceased to exist as a separate area and on Saturday afternoon it was invaded by Hells Angels who were accompanying Fairport Convention , much to the chagrin of the press corps.
