ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

In 1970, farmer David Lewis held the Kickapoo Creek Rock Festival on his private land in Heyworth, Illinois. Inspired by 1969's Woodstock, the festival featured music, nudity, the open sale of drugs and rainstorms that turned the farm into a muddy mess. He hired a local motorcycle gang called the Grim Reapers to police the grounds. Many of the town folks did not want the festival to happen and were stunned when 60,000 people showed up and lingered around the village after the fest was over. They were also surprised when Lewis left his life behind, took his $250,000 he made and never returned to Heyworth.
