Fantasy Fair and Magic Mountain Music Festival
During the summer of love in 1967, a 2-day concert festival was held in Marin County, California called the Fantasy Fair and Magic Mountain Music Festival. Major acts included Jefferson Airplane, The Doors, Canned Heat, Country Joe and the Fish, and many more. Thought I’d share some photos from this amazing, yet little known festival!
Below is a photo of The Doors. This would be one of their first major large-scale performances. ‘Light My Fire’ had just come out and rising quickly on the charts.
Here is an arts and crafts booth at the festival..
And here is Jefferson Airplane. Pictured is Marty Balin, Paul Kantner, and Spenser Dryden. Very cool shot. Imagine getting to play live for this audience!
