Monterey International Pop Festival has been called one of the most important events in the history of Rock & Roll music. It was the first major rock festival and rock charity, a forerunner and blueprint for charity concerts such as Live Aid, Farm Aid, as well as the commercial festivals, Coachella and Outside Lands. The festival was a historic musical and cultural explosion, introducing to the world Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Otis Redding and The Who, to name a few.  With its motto, “Music, Love and Flowers,” Monterey International Pop Festival drew hundreds of thousands of people to Northern California in 1967. It was a celebration of benevolence and cultural change, the key event of the Summer of Love, and presented rock music as a movement, not just in California, but globally.
Another Planet Entertainment, Goldenvoice, and The Monterey International Pop Festival Foundation will be presenting a 50th anniversary celebration festival from June 16 – 18 at the Monterey County Fairgrounds – the exact date and location it once took place 50 years ago. It will feature performances by Jack Johnson, Norah Jones, Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band, Booker T. Jones, Father John Misty, Jim James and more. 3-Day GA and VIP Tickets are currently on sale PRESS HERE for more information.
