Northern California Folk-Rock Festival 1969

This is an original/first print poster that was used to promote the 1969 Northern California Folk-Rock Festival.  This event took place May 23-25, 1969 (the "Summer of Festivals") at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds.

Featured acts at the 1969 Northern California Folk-Rock Festival were The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Led Zeppelin, Jefferson Airplane, Eric Burdon, Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Youngbloods, Spirit, Canned Heat, Chambers Brothers, Santana, Elvin Bishop, Steve Miller, Taj Mahal & Blues Image. Wish you had gone?

This is the only poster that I have ever seen with Jimi Hendrix & Led Zeppelin on the same billing.  I am about 99% sure it is the only one "out there".

This poster measures approx.  14" x 20 1/2", and was printed on a sturdy/coated (not glossy) index stock.  The terrific psychedelic artwork is courtesy of Linda Segul.

In addition to the poster we have available in NM condition, we also have one that we can offer at a lesser price with minor border flaws.  It is still a very nice poster, and would frame beautifully.  If you are interested, please send us an email or give us a call.

We understand that on a valuable poster such as this, collectors will want assurances that this is the "real deal". This poster was purchased directly from the promoter, Bob Blodgett, who guaranteed that he had not reprinted this poster.  We believe him, as this poster would be all over the place (with Jimi & Zeppelin on the bill) if there were reprints available. However, it's not.  We rarely see them.
