"A backstage pass to the wildest and woolliest ride in the history of music." - Joel Selvin, San Francisco Chronicle
Set in 1970, Festival Express was a multi-band, multi-day extravaganza that captured the spirit and imagination of a generation and a nation. What made it unique was that it was portable; for five days, the bands and performers lived, slept, rehearsed and did countless unmentionable things 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 remained locked away - until now. A momentous achievement in rock film archeology which combines the long-lost material with contemporary interviews nearly 35 years after it was first filmed.
