On this date in 1969, $6 was all it took to get into the opening day of the Denver Pop Festival, a 3 day event at, appropriately, Mile High Stadium that included performances by Frank Zappa & the Mothers of Invention, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Three Dog Night, Joe Cocker, Tim Buckley, The Flock and others. June 29th, the promoter   declared it a free festival. It closed with police attempting to clear the field with a tear gas barrage during the the last performance ever by the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
