Performers at the Monterey Pop Festival

The Monterey Pop Festival was a three-day extravaganza that was essentially the beginning of the "Summer of Love".  The Festival was June 16-18, 1967 at the Monterey County Fairgrounds in Monterey, California.  It attracted 200,000 people.  It was a groundbreaking event, for it brought together three dozen performers, some known, some unknown and an eclectic mix of music.  It was the first time that so many acts and diverse styles had performed together on the same stage.  The Festival launched the careers of Janis Joplin, Canned Heat, Otis Redding and Steve Miller.  Many performers earned recording contracts based on their performance.

Here is the complete program for the Festival:
