About

The Goal

The Story of the Ozark Music Festival will be a full-length documentary about how the small town of Sedalia, Missouri dealt with having a Woodstock-style festival held in their town in the Summer of 1974.

Our goal for this project is to reclaim a lost piece of popular music history as well as Missouri history, through interviews, archival film footage, and re-creations. We want to tell this story from as many viewpoints as possible conveying all the emotions of that turbulent weekend, from the paranoia of the town, the excitement felt by the audience and the bands, and the helplessness of the promoters and police. We’ve reached the point where we need your financial assistance to make a film worthy of this great story.

All the ingredients for a successful festival: Crowds, towers, and mud.

Risks and challenges

Without your help, it will be impossible for us to tell this lost story coherently. Your generous donations will be used for re-creations, key interviews, and the restoration of historical film and audio.
We risk losing the five years we've already invested into this project. We literally sold the family farm...
