Hey Festival Express fans! We are very excited to share this amazing lot with you. Some of you might be thinking: "Yeah I've been collecting for decades and I pretty much have it all". Well, chances are, you do not have what's shown here. This Original Press Kit is a relic from one of the more exciting events in the history of Rock and Roll. 


Included is an original newspaper featuring news of the events, band photos and order forms for tickets. 

The vintage Press Kit itself exhibits the original blue colored folder (logo circle art on the front cover) with inside sleeves to hold all the contents listed below!


Press Kit original material includes:

Band Biography Letters for Janis Joplin, The Band, Ian & Sylvia, and James & The Good Brothers.

Publicity Photos of Janis Joplin, Ian & Sylvia, Great Speckled Bird, Mountain, and James & The Good Brothers.

Press Release Letters of the events, and a Publicity Photo of Sharon Banks wearing “Rumperstickers” promos on her backside. Nice!


Originally billed as the Trans Continental Pop festival, this cross country tour made stops in three Canadian cities to stage a show with the Grateful Dead, The Band, Janis Joplin and other acts of the day. 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”.
