Framed Hendrix Newport 69 Poster. The Newport Pop Festival was held June 20th to 22nd, 1969 at Devonshire Downs in Northridge, California. Jimi Hendrix is said to have played so badly, supposedly from an LSD-laced drink, that he returned to the stage on Sunday in order to redeem himself. This Sunday performance with Buddy Miles, Eric Burdon lasted more than two hours and is now the stuff of legends with many saying it was his best-ever performance. Close to 200,000 people attended Newport ’69. Despite a poor sound system, a lack of food, water, and restrooms—and brutal security by the Hells Angels—it was deemed a resounding success by the attendees and musicians.
