Vancouver Pop Festival

 

Vancouver Pop Festival

The Vancouver Pop Festival was a Canadian rock festival held at the Paradise Valley Resort in Squamish, British Columbia. The dates of the festival were August 22, 23 and 24, 1969.[1] It was produced by Candi Promotions. The groups playing at the festival included (in alphabetical order):

Due to problems with paid attendance, only some of these acts actually performed. It has been claimed that the Grateful Dead did not perform[1] but Jerry Garcia biographer Blair Jackson disputes this, and speculates the Dead took the gig to move on from their poor performance at the Woodstock festival a week earlier.[2]
