Description
This is a Bluescentric Brand official Monterey Pop Festival Racerback Tank, available in women's sizes up to 2XL. The material is a premium fabric-laundered 4.2oz triblend 50/25/25 polyester/combed ringspun cotton/rayon racerback tee.

It was the hottest ticket of 1967 -- June 16, 17 and 18 at the Monterey County Fairgrounds featured performances by Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, The Grateful Dead, The Butterfield Blues Band, Booker T and the MGs, and The Who's first-ever U.S. performance, where Pete Townshend smashed his guitar in a famous finalé.

It was also Jimi Hendrix's U.S. debut, so not to be outdone, he set fire to his own guitar "as a sacrifice".

MPOP would be the blueprint for nearly all music festivals that came after, including Woodstock two years later.
