 ITEM DESCRIPTION

 Original 1st printing 13 x 19&1/4" cardboard concert/event poster for the Powder Ridge Festival, held at the Powder Ridge Ski Area in Middlefield, CT from 7/31-8/2/1970.

 Design by Sicilia/Lassen, poster lists appearances by Sly & the Family Stone, Eric Burdon & War, Delaney & Bonnie and Friends, Fleetwood Mac, Melanie (*the only act who actually performed), Mountain, J.F. Murphy and Free Flowing Salt, Allan Nichols and James Taylor (7/31), Joe Cocker, the Allman Brothers Band, Cactus, Little Richard, Van Morrison, Rhinoceros, Ten Wheel Drive, Jethro Tull, Tony Williams Lifetime and Zephyr (8/1) and Janis Joplin, Chuck Berry, Bloodrock, Savoy Brown, John B. Sebastian, Grand Funk Railroad, Spirit, Ten Years After and Richie Havens (8/2).

 Extra-thin flat index stock poster is in used (B-) condition; a heavy amount of edge/corner wear (numerous tape marks/stains, tiny tears, nicks, creases, bits of missing paper in a few areas), a set of flattened horizontal/vertical creases (item was folded into 1/8ths and flattened out), a couple of small "worm holes" along the bottom margin, a moderate amount of handling/creasing... you get the idea, this is a VERY well-worn example.

 Conditional issues aside, it it still a fascinating artifact from what (by virtually all accounts) turned into an unmitigated disaster. Read all about what happened when tens of thousands of people (with a lot of drugs) showed up to a festival that had been called off at the last minute;
