There's another musician named John McLaughlin? The one who must be about 75 or so now, and who played with Miles and collaborated with Santana early on and who was the leader of the Mahavishnu Orchestra is the one who is playing this year, and (I believe) the same one who has played the same festival in one or more previous years...

Agreed Steve. The picture is of the other one with the same name. American and younger.

Since I shot the photo, perhaps I can help. John McLaughlin in photo, is now 75, and was the band leader of the Mahavishnu Orchestra. I shot the photo in 1976 or so. He did indeed collaborate with Carlos Santana. No idea of a second John McLaughlin, jazz artist. A link would help.

Yeah, I recognized John McLaughlin the famous and long-time jazz (etc) guitarist from the photo, I was just asking who this other John McLaughlin would be. But I guess it's this guy — Jon(athan) McLaughlin.
