Atlantic City Pop Festival

The Atlantic City Pop Festival took place over three days in August 1969. A concert promoter driving to the shore passed Atlantic City Race Course in Mays Landing and thought it would be the perfect place for a music festival. Organizers ended up selling 120,000 tickets, or 40,000 per day.
