Location of the Altamont Free Concert 1969

ADD TO MY TRIP

The Rolling Stones, Jefferson Airplane, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young played this free concert in the hills east of the San Francisco Bay in 1969, hiring the Oakland chapter of the Hells Angels to do security. Four people died at the event.
Parts of the show that night and some of the pre-show planning on the part of the Rolling Stones can be seen in the documentary Gimmie Shelter.
