Description

Rare original 3.5 x 2 business card belonging to Alan Pariser as Production Supervisor for the Monterey International Pop Festival, which was held June 16 to 18, 1967, at the Monterey County Fairgrounds in Monterey, California. Designed like a table place card, the front features colorful logo designs for the festival and the interior contains Pariser’s contact information. In fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks.

A seminal festival that kicked off the 1967 'Summer of Love,' the Monterey Pop Festival is remembered for the first major American appearances by the Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Who, and Ravi Shankar, the first large-scale public performance of Janis Joplin, and the introduction of Otis Redding to a white audience. Other major acts included the Grateful Dead, the Byrds, Simon and Garfunkel, the Mamas and the Papas, and Buffalo Springfield. The influential event became an inspiration and a template for future music festivals, including Woodstock two years later.
