Monterey Pop

Monterey Pop

A film by DA Pennebaker

Forty-five years later we look back at one of the most influential music events of the 20th century. The Monterey Pop Festival ran for three days in June 1967. The live performances were spectacularly successful.

Janis Joplin, who was singing with Big Brother and the Holding Company, pulled out all the stops with a raw, powerful performance that helped establish her as the preeminent female rock singer of her day.

The Who climaxed a brilliant set by smashing their equipment at the conclusion of “My Generation”.

Jimi Hendrix offered an awesome display of his virtuosity as a guitarist and as a showman, humping his Marshall amplifiers and then setting his Stratocaster ablaze.

Otis Redding, the dynamic soul man, turned in what many present believe was the festival’s best performance.
