Fans at 1973 Summer Jam Rock Festival at Watkins Glen
The Summer Jam at Watkins Glen was a 1973 rock festival which once received the Guinness Book of World Records entry for “Largest audience at a pop festival.” An estimated 600,000 rock fans came to the Watkins Glen Grand Prix Raceway outside of Watkins Glen, New York on July 28, 1973, to see the Allman Brothers Band, Grateful Dead and The Band perform.

The Grateful Dead at the Straight Theater in San Francisco. September 29, 1967.
This was billed as a “Dance Class” to get around a San Francisco ordinance prohibiting concerts in the hall. A few days later, the Dead were busted in their home, some say not coincidentally. This was also the last show before Mickey Hart joined the band, making his debut during the second Dance Class.
