Piper Rock Festival 1970
My first concert was the Doors at the Allen Theater in downtown Cleveland, 02-13-1970. Piper was my first Rock Festival. I do not remember much in particular about it except it was a real good time.

Location

The Piper Rock Festival was originally scheduled at Peace Park in Akron, Ohio. Tickets went on sale and after over 10,000 tickets were sold the City Of Akron got a restraining order against the promoters of the show. So the promoters of the show went on a search to find a suitable location to hold the concert without letting the authorities know where it would take place. They finally found a place at the Louis Lightner farm in Newton Falls about an hour from Akron near Youngstown. So worried the same thing would happen to them again they actually waited until the day before the show to announce the new location.
