The 40th anniversary of The Monterey Pop Festival

Monterey was the first major rock festival in the world and became the model for future festivals, notably Woodstock.

Held at the Monterey County Fairgrounds in California, it was planned by producer Lou Adler, John Phillips of The Mamas & the Papas, and Beatles' publicist Derek Taylor.

This is a special documentary about the legendary festival, which famously included Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Otis Redding and The Who in an amazing line-up.
