Mid-West Rock Festival

 

State Fair Grounds, West Allis, Wisconsin
July 25-27, 1969
About 45,000 fans (many with photocopied tickets) enjoyed mix of US & UK bands, along with Michigan home-town bands. Plenty of groovy photos at the link below.
Great set by Led Zeppelin (boot available). The 1st Edition booed off stage. Heavy rain prevented Beck, Tull, & Seger from playing. Joe & Johnny played thru. According to "The Minneapolis Flag" underground newspaper, Zephyr, Schwall, SRC, and MC5 "were given the boot."
