Georgia’s Woodstock,

As you know, one of our goals is to aggregate and curate content from all over that is applicable to entertainment professionals in Georgia. Flagpole is a great publication covering the Athens business scene. A recent article discusses a documentary on the historic Atlanta International Pop Festivals produced by Athens resident David Lee. “The two concerts featured many artists who did not play Woodstock, like The Allman Brothers Band, Grand Funk Railroad, Rare Earth, B.B. King, It’s a Beautiful Day, Poco, Procol Harum, Spirit, Mott the Hoople and The Chambers Brothers, as well as ones who did, like Johnny Winter, Mountain, Richie Havens, John Sebastian, Ten Years After and Jimi Hendrix.”  See more.
