GOODSTOCK 2007 MUSIC FESTIVAL. 3 DAYS OF PEACE & MUSIC.

GOODSTOCK 2007 will bring together the most amazing 60's and 70's
bands from coast to coast for a 3-day festival. Iron Butterfly,
Jefferson Starship, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Mercy and dozens of
others, including the Electric Prunes, will reunite for this musical
extravaganza. Experience the music, rock culture, peace and
brotherhood of that era! Bands and fans - from Boston to Berkeley -
will finally experience the musical event that they have waited
decades for since Woodstock!

"I have watched the attempts to copy Woodstock by others," comments
Artie Kornfeld, Goodstock 2007 promoter and co-creator of Woodstock
1969. "To me, these were over-commercialized attempts to take a great
event and use it to rip-off rock and peace lovers. I consider
Goodstock 2007 to be the first real attempt to have another 3 days of
peace and music."

Goodstock 2007 is produced and promoted by Larry McClurg, of 60's band
Mind Garage, and Artie Kornfeld, famed music industry song writer,
manager, producer, and most notable as co-creator of the 1969
WOODSTOCK MUSIC AND ART FAIR - rock history's greatest 'happening' -
on Yasgur's farm in upstate New York.

With nearly 50 bands booked to date, Goodstock 2007 will be held July
19 - 21, 2007 on 1000 rolling acres at the Good Evening Ranch in
Summersville, West Virginia. Like Woodstock 1969, Goodstock 2007 is a
3-day music and camping event. The ranch will be transformed into
Goodstock Village, as a festival of the sixties offering memorabilia,
clothing and band attire, a 60?s museum style exhibit, bands
performing continually, as well as a San Francisco style light show.

Camp in the Village or stay in nearby hotels. The Village will
accommodate bands and music festival fans from nearly every state in
the USA, as well as countries worldwide. Unlike Woodstock's for-profit
imitators of recent years, Goodstock admission prices - that include
camping - start at $28.00 for one day and go up to $75.00 for all 3
days. Goodstock 2007 is all about peace and music instead of
generating profit.

According to Larry McClurg, Goodstock promoter, "Imagine the
excitement of seeing the stars and legends of rock who played the
Fillmore East, West and Woodstock, with the bands who opened for them,
and the fans who were there, all in one place again. That's what
Goodstock 2007 is. This is not an attempt to go back, re-create or
re-visit. It is a new 'happening' and an opportunity for the whole
family to experience a re-awakening of the ideals of peace and
togetherness through music."
