In the MRF logo, the two wavy bars represented the Mississippi River. The circle above the river represented the moon, since the concerts were held in the evening.
The MRF site was located on the northern part of the SIUE campus, on the west side of North University Drive, and south of Poag Road. The natural amphitheater was used as the location for graduation ceremonies beginning in 1963, long before the MRF began.
