A Summer to Remember

On the weekend of Bonnaroo, Cincinnati remembers a monumental Rock festival from 40 years ago

0 Comments · Wednesday, June 9, 2010
The June 1970 Cincinnati Summer Pop Festival didn't take place on a farm, as Woodstock had the year before, but rather at a ballpark in the West End. At Crosley Field, home of the Cincinnati Reds, 14 Rock bands played a daylong festival. With new bands like Grand Funk Railroad, Alice Cooper, Bob Seger, Mountain and Iggy Pop and the Stooges, the performers didn't reflect the Age of Aquarius but of what was coming for Rock music in the new decade of the 1970s.
