35 Amazing Concert Posters in the 1960s

A concert is a live music performance in front of an audience. The performance may be by a single musician, sometimes then called a recital, or by a musical ensemble, such as an orchestra, choir, or band. Concerts are held in a wide variety and size of settings, from private houses and small nightclubs, dedicated concert halls, amphitheaters and parks, to large multipurpose buildings, such as arenas and stadiums.

Concert posters in the 1960s

While the first concerts did not officially appear until the late 17th century, similar gatherings had been around throughout the 17th century at several European universities, such as Oxford and Cambridge. Officially, though, the first public concerts that required an admission were created by the English violinist, John Banister.

Over the next few centuries, concerts began to gain larger audiences, and classical symphonies were very popular. Finally, after World War II, these events changed into the modern concerts that take place today. An example of an early, post-WWII concert is the Moondog Coronation Ball.
