Watch Festival Express

"Festival Express... The longest party in rock-n-roll history."

The documentary film Festival Express captures the journey shared in the summer of 1970 by famous musicians taking a chartered train across the country of Canada. The Grateful Dead, Buddy Guy, Delaney & Bonnie and Friends, Janis Joplin, and The Band were among those traveling in close quarters on the train, which consisted of a total of fourteen cars.

Jam sessions inspired by drunken stupors were recorded and the groups would stop to perform live concerts in various cities such as Toronto, Winnipeg, and Calgary. Snippets of these live performances are incorporated into the film and this riveting documentary takes fans behind the scenes, weaving in personal interviews and exclusive footage of the greatest rock and roll party in history that lasted for five days straight.
