Presenting for the FIRST TIME in our auction, this Original Poster produced to promote the Newport Pop Festival! The 1968 Newport Pop Festival was one of the earliest large-scale festivals. Held at the Orange County Fairgrounds, the attendance was estimated at 140,000. The Grateful Dead played on Sunday August 4th. The full lineup of performers for the festival included Jefferson Airplane, Sonny & Cher, The Byrds, Tiny Tim, Country Joe & the Fish, Eric Burdon and the Animals, and more. As soon as we find out who may have signed it, this long lost poster will be even more special! Check back for updates.
