Festival Express – The Trans-Continental Pop Festival | This Day In Music

Written by on June 27, 2021


27 June 1970, The Trans-Continental Pop Festival (better known as the The Festival Express) set off. The tour was unique in that rather than flying to each city, most of the acts travelled on a chartered CN train. Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, The Band, The Flying Burrito Brothers and Buddy Guy Blues Band all travelled together on the train playing shows in Toronto, Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Calgary. https://www.thisdayinmusic.com/liner-notes/festival-express-the-trans-continental-pop-festival/
