The alternative bi-weekly newspaper Chicago Seed published a special issue welcoming hippies, misfits, and radicals to the city. This newspaper likened the International Amphitheater, the convention site on the South Side, to a prison and slaughterhouse. It also provided a map of Lincoln Park, headquarters for the Festival of Life.
