 Original 1st printing 17&3/8 x 22&1/2" event/concert poster for the 6/27-28/1970 opening shows of the Trans-Continental Pop Festival, held at the CNE Grandstand in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The poster (the first and second shows on the legendary "Festival Express" train tour across Canada) lists performances by the Band, the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin (*and the Full-Tilt Boogie Band), Buddy Guy, Delaney & Bonnie, Mashmakan, Cat (*Mother & the All-Night Newsboys), Traffic (with Steve Winwood), Ten Years After, Charlebois, James & the Good Brothers, Eric Andersen, Mountain, Ian & Sylvia (with the Great Speckled Bird), Tom Rush, Sea Train and Melanie. Design by Ken Walker and John Lown, image is featured in the Art of Rock on page 376 (plate 4.132).

Here's a clip of the Band (featuring the one and only Levon Helm) performing "The Weight" from the "Festival Express" film;
