THIS GIVEAWAY IS FOR A 3 DAY GENERAL ADMISSION PASS
The Monterey International Pop Festival was the first major festival to celebrate the importance of rock and roll. Serving as the festival that marked the beginning of the “Summer of Love”, the Monterey International Pop Festival not only jumpstarted the music-driven culture of the 60s and 70s, but continues to shape today’s global concert industry and festival landscape.
Held at the very same place where the legendary festival transpired, the 2017 celebration features performances by Jack Johnson, Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band, Leon Bridges, Norah Jones, The Head and The Heart, Father John Misty, Regina Spektor, Gary Clark Jr., Jim James and many more. The goal of this celebration is to memorialize Monterey Pop’s importance, legacy and lasting impact on contemporary culture with live music performances, unique experiential activations, historic memorabilia and art installations.
Lou Adler, one of the original Monterey International Pop founders who co-produced the 1967 festival, is involved once again. Lou said, “The Monterey International Pop Festival cannot be duplicated but can be celebrated and will be, by the performers and the attendees at the 50th Anniversary festival.”
