About the Powder Ridge Rock Festival of 1970

Near Middlefield, Connecticut, a festival scheduled for the Powder Ridge Ski Area was stopped by injunction only a couple of days before its scheduled start on Thursday, July 30, 1970. It was going to be a monster, starring several Woodstock veterans and a rumored appearance by Led Zeppelin. After local residents got the festival stopped, signs were posted on the roads to the site saying “festival prohibited,” but no matter—between 30,000 and 50,000 people showed up anyhow. Scheduled bands that had made it to the site could not perform under pain of arrest, although Melanie eventually did. Most of the music that weekend was provided by the attendees themselves, either on instruments they had brought or through stereo systems and car radios, amidst a blizzard of drug use that made Woodstock veterans blanch.
