 ITEM DESCRIPTION

 Original 1st printing 11&3/4 x 20&7/8" (trimmed bottom edge) concert/event poster for the (second) Miami Pop Festival, held at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale, FL from 12/28-30/1968.

 Acts listed to appear include: Jose Feliciano, Procol Harum, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Country Joe & the Fish, Three Dog Night, Chuck Berry, the Infinite McCoys, Booker T. & the M.G.'s, Fleetwood Mac, Pacific Gas & Electric and Blues Image (12/28), Steppenwolf, Marvin Gaye, Grateful Dead, Hugh Masekela, Flatt & Scruggs, the Butterfield Blues Band, Joni Mitchell, Procol Harum (again), the James Cotton Blues Band, Richie Havens and the Box Tops (featuring Alex Chilton) (12/29), Jose Feliciano (again), Iron Butterfly , the Turtles, Canned Heat, Grass Roots, Jr. Walker and the All-Stars, Ian & Sylvia, the Charles Lloyd Quartet, Sweet Inspirations, Sweetwater and the Joe Tex Revue (12/30).

Design by Procity, thick foil-coated glossy stock poster is in decent (B-) condition; a series of tiny cub staple holes scattered around the outer edges, along with a fairly moderate to heavy amount of surface/edge wear (stray surface dings/scratches, a few tiny chips, tiny amounts of "worming", scuffing/rubbing in a few areas, a few decent-sized bends, a couple of nips and dings all over the piece and around the outer margins) and about 3/8" trimmed from the bottom edge, a 1" tear in the top right corner (reinforced on the reverse with tape), along with a bit of residue and pencil scratch on the reverse, a hint of warping, etc... this example was pretty obviously pulled down from public display at the time of the event- in fact it comes directly from an original Festival vendor! While this piece has its share of conditional issues, it still presents itself quite nicely.

 A VERY, VERY scarce/hard-to-find South Florida festival item with a great pop art/psychedelic design and an UNBELIEVABLE lineup of rock, folk, jazz, R&B, bluegrass and pop. Name a popular music genre, it was likely represented at Gulfstream Park. You can stream the Grateful Dead's set (one of their best of 1968) HERE;
