Original 1st printing 14&1/2 x 20&1/2" event poster for the 7/15-16/1967 Fantasy Faire and Magic Music Festival, held at Devonshire Downs, outside of Los Angeles, CA.
Poster lists appearances by the Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Country Joe & the Fish, Grass Roots, Canned Heat, Iron Butterfly, B.F.D. Blues Band and more. (*MANY additional bands performed at this event, including Kaleidoscope (with David Lindley), the Factory with Richie Hayward and Lowell George), New Delhi River Band (with David Nelson, later of NRPS (and MANY more.)
Art by Penny Havard, medium-thick flat index stock poster is in BEAUTIFUL near mint (A- to A-/B+) condition; there is a thin handling bend in the lower left corner and a couple of tiny corner-tip bumps, but that's pretty much all there is to speak of. VERY nice-looking example.
KILLER early '67 festival poster with a great design (*recycled at least twice for different events) and an eclectic psychedelic rock & roll lineup. Check out a personal recollection of the event (with a You Tube link to the original radio spot) HERE:
