This is a list of the performers at the Monterey Pop Festival, held June 16 to June 18, 1967, at the Monterey County Fairgrounds in Monterey, California.[1]

There were five separate shows during the three-day festival. Each performance lasted around 4 hours. Festival goers could buy a full weekend ticket, or tickets for the 5 separate shows. The showground arena, where the performances took place, had 5,850 stand seats, but many others had floor and perimeter standing tickets, allowing between 7000 and 10,000 to witness the 5 concerts held that weekend (One on Friday night, two on Saturday and two on Sunday). Tickets were also sold to allow people to enter the fairgrounds without access to the performance arena. Crowd estimates for the festival have ranged from 25,000-90,000 people, who congregated in and around the festival grounds.[2][3][4] All of the artists performed to a packed house except Ravi Shankar whose audience was about 80% capacity following a rainy morning.[5]
