Devonshire Downs, Northridge, CA 6/20-22-69

Albert Collins at Devonshire Downs, Northridge, CA 6/20-22-69 by Unknown

Catalog No. MSC-DDC.1969.06.20

TThis great image was used to advertise the Newport Pop Festival held June 20 — 22, 1969 at Devonshire Downs in Northridge, California. Jimi Hendrix was the headline act for the Friday night opening, but he played so poorly - supposedly from an LSD-laced drink - that he returned to the stage on Sunday. His Sunday performance with Buddy Miles, Eric Burdon, and several others lasted more than two hours. The Sunday performance is now legendary and prompted Los Angeles Times critic Pete Johnson to write that the audience “may have heard the best performance of their lives.”

An estimated 200,000 people attended Newport ’69. Despite a poor sound system, a lack of food, water, and restrooms, and brutal security by the Hells’ Angels, it was deemed a resounding success by the attendees and musicians. The City Fathers of Northridge held a different view and banned any future music festivals. Newport ’69 made headlines around the country for a spell, but two months later, the phenomenon known as Woodstock made Newport seem like a picnic.

The original poster was printed on thin white stock and measures approximately 23⅞" x 36⅛".

The original handbill was printed on thin yellow stock and measures approximately 5" x 8".
