Warlocks in Philadelphia 1972

Warlocks attend the 1972 Philadelphia Folk Festival

In the midst of Sunday’s festival activity, the Philadelphia Warlocks—roared up to the entrance gate to be surrounded at once by state police. Within a short time, festival co-chairman Bob Siegel and other cool heads on the security force negotiated the impasse to a compromise: Warlocks were allowed in free on the condition of non-destructive behavior and a promise to leave the grounds by 5 PM.—Amie Hill, Rolling Stone
