Here we have a 1970 Festival Express treat! These relics are from one of the more exciting events in the history of Rock and Roll. This lot contains an original Performer Pass and an official “Rumpersticker” from the tour. A variety of these were produced and distributed at various locations along the historic train ride, which consisted of Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead, The Band, Delaney & Bonnie, Buddy Guy, Traffic, Ian & Sylvia, James & The Good Brothers, and more. 

 

The Winnipeg performer pass exhibits the pass number in the lower left. The vintage Rumpersticker measures 4" circle and both are 100% Original with no restoration whatsoever. In August 2018 we auctioned a press kit which contained a publicity photo of Sharon Banks wearing Rumperstickers on her backside, as part of a press release. These are amazingly scarce items to have surfaced, and now become available to all collectors of this era to finally own! 

 

Originally billed as the Trans Continental Pop festival, this cross country tour made stops in three Canadian cities to stage shows. The real story however was the train that carried the musicians across Canada in the summer of 1970. The camaraderie led to an outrageous non-stop party/ jam session. The joy is forever captured in the 2003 Film “Festival Express”.
