The Wild West Festival

Kezar Stadium, San Francisco
Aug 22-24, 1969
In the aftermath of the naked, drugged out, mud-covered hippies cavorting at Woodstock, cities began cancelling "rock festivals" across the country. San Francisco was not immune to this.
To show support for the cancelled festival organizers, Bill Graham at The Fillmore West and Chet Helms at The Family Dog On The Great Highway, put on benefit shows on that weekend (see the link at the bottom for details).
