Here you have an authentic ATLANTA POP FESTIVAL ticket for Saturday and Sunday, July 4th and 5th, 1970. It is super hard to find just a plain stub from this classic festival, finding one with tickets left for Saturday and Sunday is very rare.
Especially one with just light fading without stains/discolorations as this one. Many if not most, are faded and look a yellow or washed out grey color due to exposure to light.
This one was mostly stored out of light and why it retains most of the original color. It is only missing the stub for Friday, the 1st day.It is in really nice condition with only slight wear, a crease down the middle and holes from a staple at each end. This is a super find!! Would be very very hard to find better. Atlanta Pop Festival - 1970. The second Atlanta International Pop Festival was a music festival held in a soybean field adjacent to the Middle Georgia Raceway in Byron, Georgia. Originally scheduled for July 3 to July 5, 1970, it did not finish until near dawn on the 6th. It was the only successor to the first Atlanta International Pop Festival 1969. The event was promoted by Alex Cooley, who had organised the same event the previous year, as well as the Texas International Pop Festival. Like the Woodstock festival the previous summer, the event was promoted as three days of peace, love and music. Also like Woodstock, it became an "open event" when the promoter threw open the gates after crowds outside began to tear down the plywood fence that had been erected around the site. An estimated 350,000 to 500,000, and possibly 600,000 people attended. Performers included The Allman Brothers Band, Jethro Tull (scheduled but did not perform, citing laryngitis), Terry Reid, B. King, Procol Harum, Jimi Hendrix, Chambers Brothers, Poco, Grand Funk Railroad, Ravi Shankar, Ten Years After, Johnny Winter, John Sebastian, Mountain, and Spirit. Jimi Hendrix played to the largest American audience of his career, presenting his rendition of the Star Spangled Banner for the fireworks around midnight on the Fourth of July. Jimi's setlist: All Along the Watchtower Freedom Foxy Lady Purple Haze Hey Joe Voodoo Chile (slight return) Stone Free Star Spangled banner Straight Ahead Hey Baby.

The authentic Globe Ticket Company card stock has their famous watermark built right into the card stock which alone authenticates the ticket (and made them largely impossible to reproduce). Especially now, as the machines that were around back then to produce the card stock are long gone. If you want more information on the Globe printing process from back then, go to Beatles website rarebeatles. The festival program in background is for illustration only and not part of this listing.
