This year’s theme… Summer of Love Revisited. 2017

 

This summer marks the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, its epicenter right here in San Francisco, with the Fillmore being ground zero.

Seminal albums were released by Jefferson Airplane, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Who, Aretha Franklin and many more, while a number of important bands were formed that year including Santana, Fleetwood Mac, Sly and the Family Stone, Chicago, NRBQ, CCR, etc…

The Human Be-In took place here with spoken word by Ginsberg and Timothy Leary and music by Big Brother and the Holding Company, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead.

The SF Oracle wrote:
“A new concept of celebrations beneath the human underground must emerge, become conscious, and be shared, so a revolution can be formed with a renaissance of compassion, awareness, and love, and the revelation of unity for all mankind.”

The theme for this year’s Fillmore Jazz Festival is “Summer of Love Revisited” in honor of this 50th milestone as we celebrate its unifying message of compassion and community.

This year’s artists will honor that spirit by performing a handful of songs from this period, showing how Jazz can embrace other musical genres, with uplifting results.
