Original 1st printing 28 x 22&1/8" cardboard concert/event poster for the 1st Atlanta International Pop Festival, held at Atlanta International Raceway, just outside of Hampton, GA from 7/4-5/1969.
Art by Lance Bragg, image (paper version) is featured in the Art of Rock on page 391 (plate 4.183).
Poster lists festival participants Chuck Berry, Al Kooper, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Canned Heat, Chicago Transit Authority, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Dave Brubeck and Gerry Mulligan, Delaney & Bonnie and Friends, Ian & Sylvia, Tommy James & the Shondells, Janis Joplin, Johnny Winter, Joe Cocker, Led Zeppelin, Pacific Gas & Electric, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Johnny Rivers, Spirit, Staple Singers, Sweetwater, Booker T. & the MG's, Ten Wheel Drive and "extra special guest attraction" (it was Grand Funk Railroad).
Thick cardboard stock poster is in excellent (B+) condition; there is a small 1" diagonal bend in the upper right corner tip, along with a couple of tiny corner-tip pressure creases, a tiny split in the lower left corner and a couple of nearly-invisible light surface scrapes and scratches hiding within the image area, otherwise it is a VERY sharp/crisp uncirculated example of the first-state cardboard version of this oversized 1969 event poster with a great design and a MASSIVE lineup.
