Monterey Pop

Series: Sonic Cinema

Sonic Cinema presents a brand new digital restoration, on the 50th anniversary of the Monterey Pop Festival!

On a beautiful June weekend in 1967, at the height of the Summer of Love, the first and only Monterey Pop Festival roared forward, capturing a decade’s spirit and ushering in a new era of rock and roll. Monterey would launch the careers of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Otis Redding , but they were just a few among a wildly diverse cast that included The Who, the Byrds, Simon and Garfunkel, Jefferson Airplane and Ravi Shankar. With his characteristic vérité style, D. A. Pennebaker captured it all, immortalizing moments that have become legend: Pete Townshend destroying his guitar, Jimi Hendrix burning his.
