Denver Pop Festival

Mile High Stadium, Denver, Colorado
June 27-29, 1969
Friday night everything was pretty cool. Saturday, however, showed cops in all their stupid riot brilliance. Tear gas kept freeloaders at bay for a little while.
Sunday was worse, with cop reinforcments, including dogs. They also had a pepper-spray weapon that they showered the folks with. They returned fire with rocks and bottles. A swell time was NOT had by all.
Taj Mahal, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Blind Faith, and Sweetwater were no shows. Last appearance by The Jimi Hendrix Experience
