Come Together: Monterey Pop (15)

people at Monetrey Pop festival

Prodigious documentarian D.A. Pennebaker captures the raw musical power on display at this iconic festival.

Very much a pre-cursor to Woodstock two years later, the ’67 Monterey Pop festival brought together some of the most iconic performers of the Summer of Love.

The festival would launch the careers of Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Otis Redding, but they were just a few among a wildly diverse cast that included the Mamas and the Papas, the Who, Simon and Garfunkel, the Byrds and many more, capturing a decade's spirit and ushering in a new era of rock and roll.
