The meaning of pop is a lot different today than what it was then. Killer lineup.

Hey, my dad went to this!

We’re Atlanta natives, and he actually has a framed copy of this poster hanging in a spare bedroom. He has a lot of concerts under his belt, mostly before I was born in the early 80’s 🙂

He saw Zeppelin a few times (caught them on their first American tour), every Pink Floyd tour from *Saucer Full of Secrets* through *Animals*, Janis Joplin at the pop fest, Fleetwood Mac during *Rumors*, Bowie during *Ziggy Stardust*, The Who during *Tommy*, a *ton* of Zappa shows… the list is too long to keep going.

He also had a ticket to Woodstock, but couldn’t go at the last moment.

His health is declining now, so I spend as much time with him as I can, and we just talk about life. One of his favorite things to reminisce about is concerts, so I’ll have to ask him what memories he has of this Pop Fest. I know he recently showed me some good crowd photos that his friend sent him.

This has to be the worst festival poster design ever

Not exactly current, but my hippy family members still talk about this festival.
