Stream the Monterey Pop Festival

….just use a little imagination!

It’s June 16th, 1967. You’re 20 years old, and you bought a ticket to the Monterey Pop Festival in California.

With the right soundtrack, you can imagine being there for three days of psychedelic music and fun, without feeling like a packed sardine.

The festival lineup was quite astounding. Bands like The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Jefferson Airplane were in their heyday when the Monterey Pop Festival took place. Here are some albums that can bring you back to those days in the Summer of Love, with nothing but music on your mind. Most are available for just a few dollars, ready to stream and download!
