Protest and Psychedelic Music

Protest and Psychedelic Music: A Reflection of the Times (1967-1972)

In this period of protest and psychedelic music, a new phenomenon called the music arts festival developed with the creation of the Monterrey Pop Festival in 1967. It became the template for other large, multiple days outdoor festivals culminating with the iconic Woodstock festival over a four day period in August 1969. The Woodstock Music and art Fair has become regarded as one of the greatest and most pivotal moments in popular music history for not only its performers, but its association with peace and the counter-culture.
