Monterey Pops Festival


The crowd at Monterey Pops Festival was performing, too, but not on stage. Flowers, patchouli oil, handmade clothes and leather were everywhere. So were psychedelics. It was June 1967, the beginning of the Summer of Love, when everything seemed possible.

To find photos of the musicians that made the three-day festival a success, click on these links:  Janis and Big Brother, Jefferson Airplane, Eric Burdon and the Animals, Simon and Garfunkel, Country Joe and the Fish, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, and Hugh Masakela.
