Atlantic City Pop Festival

Atlantic City Pop Festival

The Atlantic City Pop Festival took place in 1969 on August 1, 2 and 3rd at the Atlantic City race track, two weeks before the better known Woodstock Festival. The festival is often confused with the Atlanta International Pop Festival (1969), which took place over the 1969 Fourth of July weekend.

Attended by some 100,000+ people the festival featured the following performers (partial list):
**American Dream
**Booker T. & The M.G.s
**Tim Buckley
**Paul Butterfield Blues Band
**The Byrds
**Canned Heat
**The Chambers Brothers
**Chicago **Chicago Transit Authority
**Joe Cocker
**The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown
**Credence Clearwater Revival
**Dr. John
**Iron Butterfly
**Jefferson Airplane
**Janis Joplin
**Little Richard
**Lothar and the Hand People
**Hugh Masekela
**Buddy Miles
**Joni Mitchell
**Mother Earth
**Tracy Nelson
**Procol Harum
**Buddy Rich
**Sir Douglas Quintet
**Three Dog Night
**Edgar Winter
**Frank Zappa

**Biff Rose was the MC and filled in for Joni Mitchell when she started to cry and ran off stage in the middle of her 3rd song when the crowd was not paying attention to her performance. It seems she was placed in the rotation directly after Mother Earth featuring Tracy Nelson and the crowd wasn't ready to hear her mild act.

**Crosby, Stills & Nash were originally on the lineup but ended up as a no-show, Nash supposedly had polyps on tonsils (but sang at Woodstock two weeks later). The Chambers Brothers were a last-minute substitute.

**Moody Blues were scheduled but weren't there.

**Johnny Winter was also scheduled and didn't show. The MC apologized after the last band played.
