Two weeks before the festival everyone remembers, there was this little 3-day event in New Jersey.
Little by Woodstock standards, but 100,000 people converging on the Atlantic City Race Track is obviously a decent crowd.
The A.C. Pop Festival was held on August 1, 2 and 3, 1969, with Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, Joe Cocker, Santana, Iron Butterfly, Procol Harum, CCR, and many others.
There isn’t much footage but I’m glad I found the little clip of Janis kickin’ it out.
Anyone out there who was there? Share your memories!
