Rock History: Goose Lake Turns 40

Over the years, some people have called it Michigan’s own Woodstock -- with nicer weather. The Goose Lake International Music Festival burst on the scene Aug. 7-9, 1970, drawing thousands to a spot near Jackson, where performers included Jethro Tull, Rod Stewart, Chicago and many others. This summer marks the 40th anniversary of the wild and controversial outdoor music festival -- Wikipedia has more.


can you believe it, 40 years? I was there for the full three days and can remember the flood of people, the slide and of course the bands. Hard to believe 40 years have passed.
