Summer of Love Kickoff

Two days of rock music on the mountain.



THE MONTEREY INTERNATIONAL Pop Festival happened June 16 and 17, 1967; Woodstock was two years later. But before either of them, we had the Fantasy Fair and Magic Mountain Music Festival, June 10 and 11, 1967, at the Cushing Memorial Amphitheatre on the south face of Mount Tamalpais in Marin. Was this the world’s first outdoor rock concert? It definitely helped usher in San Francisco’s Summer of Love. Fantasy Fair performers included The Byrds (with Hugh Masekela), The Doors (“Light My Fire” was headed to the top of the charts) and Jefferson Airplane, whose Spencer Dryden, Marty Balin and Paul Kanter appear, left to right, in the photo here (dated 1967), taken by then-22-year-old Bryan Costales. This year, on June 10, the Mountain Play Association holds a one-day-only music celebration to honor that festival’s 50th anniversary, with live bands and a concert version of the rock musical Hair, which also premiered in ’67. The event occurs in conjunction with the Mountain Play’s 104th series, this time featuring Disney’s Beauty and the Beast every Sunday from May 21 to June 18. For more information on both events, visit mountainplay.org.
