Seattle Pop Festival

The Seattle Pop Festival was a Boyd Grafmyre.

Twenty-six musicians and groups performed at the festival, including Chuck Berry, Black Snake, Tim Buckley, The Byrds, Chicago Transit Authority, Albert Collins, Crome Syrcus, Bo Diddley, The Doors, Floating Bridge, The Flock, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Guess Who, It's A Beautiful Day, Led Zeppelin, Charles Lloyd, Lonnie Mack, Lee Michaels, Rockin Fu, Murray Roman, Santana, Spirit, Ten Years After, Ike & Tina Turner, Vanilla Fudge, Alice Cooper and The Youngbloods.[1]

Tickets for the event cost $6 for a day or $15 for all three of the days. It has been recorded that the total attendance over the three days exceeded 50,000 fans.[1] Because attendance was larger than expected, extra food and water needed to be brought into the venue.[1] According to one source:

"Sanitary facilities were inadequate, but every attempt was made to meet county requirements ... Nearby neighbors complained of traffic and the hippie atmosphere, but Chick Dawsey, owner of Gold Creek, noted that spectators were orderly with very few exceptions."[1]
