Original handbill/ticket order form (in typical period Bill Graham style) with informational flyer for attendees of the Goose Lake International Music Festival, a three-day event held in Leoni Township, outside Jackson, Michigan from August 7-9, 1970, with an estimated 200,000 attendees. Organizers hoped it would be "the world's first permanent festival site." But although the event drew over 200,000 people, it was not repeated due to multiple arrests and the displeasure of local authorities. The Stooges, Jethro Tull, Chicago, and Brownsville Station were among the many featured performers (Alice Cooper and Joe Cocker, also named on this handbill, did not perform due to contractual difficulties). Recto of flyer offers notes on available resources (legal aid, rumor control, "free stuff," loose schedule of shows). Map of the Goose Lake Park grounds printed on verso, pointing out the Warlock Woods, Stoned Beach, the demarcations of the Tripalot and the Tokealot, et cetera. Two scarce survivals.
