As per listing on http://concertposterauction.com/detail. ... gpic=0#img :

-According to Promoter John Brower, ticket sales for the event were lagging, so he phoned Apple Records in London and personally asked John Lennon (a well-documented '50's-era rock & roll enthusiast and fan) to "help out" (Brower suggested he could have free tickets or perhaps emcee the festival). In a surprise move, John not only agreed to attend, but also perform.

-Alice Cooper (who was not very well-known at all at this point) asked John Brower that, if he could open for John Lennon, his band would play for free (which apparently they did). Alice's set (which was filmed) featured the now-legendary "chicken incident", featured in the recent documentary "Super-Duper Alice Cooper".

-The Doors closed the festival with a performance of "The End", at the beginning of which, Jim Morrison tells the audience what an honor it was to be to be preceded on the same stage by "so many illustrious musical geniuses".

-The ticket price for the 13-hour-long show was $6.00.
