Location

The Portage/Waupaca County line near Iola, about 80 miles west of Green Bay and 140 miles north of Madison, The 200-acre festival site was partly wooded, with a long, sloping field that created a natural amphitheater. The only building on the site was an old barn with a lily pond nearby, which had been taken over by the bikers for a campsite. It was the lowest point on the site, to the left of the stage area.
