What do you get when you have 200K people come to see 40+ of the greatest rock bands of the 70's, with only 3 cops and 300 wooden toilets? It's the Erie Canal Soda Pop Festival! The plan was simple, throw a rock 'n roll festival that's better than New York's 1969 Woodstock Music Festival. They had a line up which included:
After being BANNED in Evansville, Indiana by the Mayor, the festival was moved to Illinois, but the only way to access the festival grounds was a single road from the Indiana side, this created a lawless wasteland. Just walk down "Alice in Wonderland Avenue", a makeshift row of drug vendors for all of your festival drug needs. After watching the naked people wash themselves in the waters of the Wabash River, head over to the Turd Fields to... well, you get the idea and don't forget to stop by the food trucks for a truck burning or two!
For all it's troubles, attendees universally claim it was a an amazing concert weekend, with very little violence. Thanks in part to the "karate experts" from Chicago and Los Angles, the promoters hired to keep the peace. Grab your friends, hike 6 miles up to the stage and ready yourselves to rock for the Epoch of the Erie Canal Soda Pop Festival!
