The Palm Springs Pop Festival was a historic rock festival held April 1–2, 1969 in Palm Springs, California.[1] The lineup featured artists such as Moby Grape, Canned Heat, and John Mayall. The situation went sour when policing efforts militarized the three-day event and there were riots,[2] and a young concert-goer was shot and killed by a nearby store clerk. Concert permits were not issued in Palm Springs afterwards for many years.[3]
