Lewisville Looks Back: Texas International Pop Festival
Friday, Aug. 30
Labor Day weekend 1969, just two weeks after Woodstock, Lewisville was the location of one of the largest music events Texas had ever seen. The event drew more than 100,000 music fans – including more than a fair share of colorfully dressed hippies that sparked a bit of controversy among the locals – for three days of live entertainment at the former Dallas International Motor Speedway and a smaller free stage on the shores of Lewisville Lake. The Texas International Pop Festival featured such performers as Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin, Santana, Sly & the Family Stone, Canned Heat, Chicago Transit Authority, and more.
Join us for a special evening of Lewisville Looks Back on the eve of the 50th Anniversary Texas International Pop Festival. At this special event historic footage from the original festival will be shown, as well as a new mini-documentary consisting of stories and interviews from attendees of the 1969 Texas International Pop Festival. Dallas concert promoter Angus Wynne III, who organized the 1969 will also stop by to answer questions and share his memories. Lewisville’s Poet Laureate, J. Paul Holcomb will debut a new original poem to commemorate the festival and the evening will conclude with a sneak peek of the art and history exhibit in the MCL Grand Art Gallery, which opens to the public the next day. The exhibit, which will include rare photographs, archival video footage, oral histories, and artifacts is being organized in partnership by the City of Lewisville and the Denton County Office of History & Culture.
The event is free to attend, but we recommend you RSVP to reserve your seat at mclgrand.tix.com.
