The "Rockatta De Bowl" festival was organized by Miles Copeland. After a day and a night of rainstorms, the whole festival site was a sludgy sea of knee-deep mud.
After an hour a frequent announcements of "just another couple of minutes" The Police entered the stage around 10pm. This was the first concert of The Police in three months and was also the start of the promoting of the forthcoming album Zenyatta Mondatta (which was released on 03-10-1980). From this album four songs were performed (not counting Voices Inside My Head which was only played from tape).
About £50,000 of the proceeds of this festival were donated to a good cause.
