Wikipedia Description:

The second Atlanta International Pop Festival was a music festival held at the Middle Georgia Raceway in Byron, Georgia. Originally scheduled for July 3 to July 5, 1970, it did not finish until near dawn on the 6th. It was the only successor to the first Atlanta International Pop Festival 1969. The event was promoted by Alex Cooley, who had organised the same event the previous year, as well as the Texas International Pop Festival

Like the Woodstock festival the previous summer, the event was promoted as "three days of peace, love and music." Tickets for the festival were priced at $14. Also like Woodstock, it became an "open event" when the promoter threw open the gates. An estimated 350,000 to 500,000, and possibly 600,000 people attended.

Performers included the The Allman Brothers Band, Jethro Tull (scheduled but did not perform, citing laryngitis), Terry Reid, B.B. King, Procol Harum, Jimi Hendrix, Chambers Brothers, Poco, Grand Funk Railroad, Captain Beefheart, Ravi Shankar, 10 Years After, Johnny Winter, John Sebastian, Mountain, and Spirit.[2][1][3] Jimi Hendrix played his rendition of the Star Spangled Banner for the fireworks around midnight on the 4th of July.
