In the summer of 1970, some of the eras biggest rock stars all took to the rails for Festival Express, a multi-artist, multi-day, multi-city concert tour that captured the spirit and imagination of a generation. Join the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Buddy Guy, The Band, and more for a trip back to that amazing time and revolutionary tour. For five days, the bands and performers lived, slept, rehearsed and let loose aboard a customized train that traveled from Toronto to Winnipeg to Calgary, with each stop culminating in a mega-concert. The entire experience was filmed both off-stage and on, but the extensive footage and sound tapes of the events remained locked away for decades, only recently having been rediscovered and restored. Festival Express is a momentous achievement in rock film archaeology which combines the long-lost material with contemporary interviews that add important context to the event nearly 35 years after originally being filmed.
