It’s been widely reported in this blog that Vintage Concert Posters have been receiving continuous and widespread recognition and exposure at major museum exhibits around the world over the past few years.
This exposure has added a major source of legitimacy to these amazing artworks and has resulted in a huge increase in the number of people that are now collecting these posters.
All of this will be DWARFED by the international exposure that is now, suddenly, just weeks away. Beginning on January 1st, the world will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of The Summer of Love. The city of San Francisco is planning a YEAR LONG CELEBRATION, with no less than 3 major museum exhibits, multiple custom tours, and countless musical events.
In addition, on June 16-18, 2017, there will be a 3 day Monterey Pop Festival to commemorate and celebrate the 50th Anniversary of The Monterey Pop Festival, the first and hugely important commercial rock festival held in The United States.
The Monterey Pop Festival to be held this summer is the culmination of a separate 5 month celebration to be held May- September, 2017 in the City of Monterey!
In addition, there is sure to be major worldwide television, newspaper and magazine coverage of these events, as well as historical retrospectives of the 1967 Summer of Love.
In short, expect for the whole world to have a case of “Sixties Mania”, that is sure to influence the sights, sounds and fashions of the coming year. (We previously reported that Nike released a new shoe with graphics of 1960’s Concert Posters).
We have tirelessly reported on the lollapalooza effects that have taken the market for Vintage Concert posters by storm, 1)Incredible beauty, 2)Extreme Rarity, 3)Ridiculously Cheap Prices, and very critically, 4) Unsurpassed Historical Importance.
How many collectibles can you name that enjoy an entire year of celebration and publicity? All of this is not theoretical, or destined to happen at some indefinite point in the future. It’s all happening NOW and will continue to accelerate the rate of change we are currently seeing in this fast moving and exciting marketplace!
As a reader of this blog, we implore you to use the information you have NOW, while YOU ARE STILL WAY AHEAD OF THE CURVE. Use the coming weeks and months to start or add to your collection while supply is still available and prices are still affordable. You’ll be glad you did!
