Kickapoo Creek Rock Festival

On Memorial Day weekend in 1970 an estimated 60,000 people, mostly hippies and college-age students, descended on the village of Heyworth, south of Bloomington, Illinois, to attend a rock festival named "Incident at Kickapoo Creek." The collection includes summaries by Robert Bradley, PhD, of legal proceedings before and after the concert.  Two sets of newspaper clippings describe the concert itself (Folder 3) and the local social context (Folder 5).
