Atlanta Pop Festival 1970

1970 Atlanta International Pop Festival poster, 28 x 22, designed by Lance Bragg. Rolled and in very good condition, with scattered surface creasing, a few trivial spots of soiling, two clipped corners, some paper loss along the left edge, and tears along the edges.The second and final festival, held during the 4th of July weekend, much like Woodstock in 1969, was eventually turned into a free event when fans tore down the plywood fences, resulting in a crowd estimated anywhere from 350,000 to 550,000. The Allman Brothers, who were barred from playing the previous year due to a crooked booking agent, were headliners this time around. Grand Funk Railroad, who played the previous year's event as an unsigned band, were a sensation; their performance subsequently released as a million-selling live album. Jim Hendrix reprised his 'Star Spangled Banner' during midnight fireworks on the 4th. RRAuction COA.
