Among the many other acts that performed over the weekend of June 16-18 were the Mamas and Papas (Papa John Phillips, along with Beatles' publicist Derek Taylor and others, was responsible for organizing the event), the Association, Big Brother and the Holding Company (this was also Janis Joplin's big "coming out", and she wowed the crowd like no one else), Jefferson Airplane, the Who, the Byrds, Otis Redding (he introduced the song "Sitting On the Dock Of the Bay" here), Grateful Dead, Buffalo Springfield, Moby Grape, Simon and Garfunkel, Eric Burdon and the Animals, and more. This shiny poster, printed with with vibrant, colorful inks on a metallic-coated paper stock, measures 12.25" x 21.5", with groovy graphics by Tom Wilkes. The bottom corners show a tiny bit of creasing, but overall, this is in VG++ condition.
