    Description

    Jimi Hendrix/The Who/Janis Joplin - Monterey Pop Festival Poster AOR-3.5 (1967). Original large format poster printed on foil stock, designed by Tom Wilkes for the seminal two-day Festival from June 16-18, 1967. This larger size was used to promote the show on Telephone poles, in store windows and where you could buy tickets for the event. There was a smaller size printed that was sold at the show. It is very hard to find the larger size in this condition. Measures approximately 19" x 35". In Very Good condition with a horizontal crease running across the center of the poster, with general creases and surface marks.

    Literature: See Grushkin, Paul, The Art of Rock Posters from Presley to Punk, Abbeville Press, New York, 1987, p.258 (illustrated).

    The Monterey Pop Festival launched the short but dynamic careers of both Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, and featured memorable performances by the cream of the current Rock scene: the Who, Buffalo Springfield, Eric Burden and the Animals, Moby Grape, even Ravi Shankar.
