Noteworthy Now
On August 3 & 4 of 1968, Costa Mesa California hosted the best attended concert in U.S. history to that date.  The Newport Pop Festival at the Orange County Fairgrounds was billed as a 'first annual', but the next year's event got re-branded as Newport 69 but also changed locations, moving to Northridge.
The '68 concert's big draws were the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Steppenwolf, The Byrds and The Animals.  Tickets were just $4.50 in advance and $5.50 at the gate.
