Monterey Pop

On a beautiful June weekend over 50 years ago, the Monterey International Pop Festival ushered in a new era of rock and roll. With his characteristic vérité style, now-legendary documentarian D.A. Pennebaker captured it all—including knock-out performances from Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Otis Redding, Jefferson Airplane, the Mamas and the Papas, and an incredible finale by Ravi Shankar. Relive the memories or experience this seminal event for the first time with this gorgeous 4K restoration.

This film is part of the Sounds of Summer: Greatest Hits Vol. 1 series.
