Product Description

We have what we believe is an original poster from the Monterey International Pop Music Festival, which took place on June 16, 17 and 18, 1967 in Monterey California. This festival, dubbed the beginning of the “Summer of Love,” drew over 200,000 attendees and is regarded as the first big rock festival, since it preceded Woodstock by two years! The festival is remembered for the first major American appearances by Jimi Hendrix and The Who. In addition, it was the first large scale public performance of Janis Joplin! This poster has been applied to a foam core back and measures approximately 12 1/4 inches by approximately 21 3/8 inches. In addition, the corners have multiple tack holes and there are several wrinkles, as well as, a few surface scratches in the paper
