Monterey International Pop Festival Poster (1967) The Summer of Love was never more beautiful than at the incredible Monterey Pop Festival. Three days and nights, 200, 000 blissed-out people -- and this was two years before Woodstock! Among the many musical acts that performed over the weekend of June 16-18 were the Mamas and Papas (Papa John Philips, along with Beatles' publicist Derek Taylor and others, was responsible for organizing the event); the Association; Big Brother and the Holding Company (this was Janis Joplin's big "coming out", and she wowed the crowd like no one else); Jefferson Airplane; the Jimi Hendrix Experience (fresh from London -- this was Jimi's USA "debut"); 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 metallic inks, is from that halcyon time. It measures 12.25" x 21.5", with groovy graphics by Tom Wilkes. The edges and bottom corners show a tiny bit of wear, but overall, this is in VG++ condition. Can you dig it? Far out! And remember: if you're goin' to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair....
