A rousing record of a little-known but monumental moment in rock 'n' roll history. Set in 1970, Festival Express was a multi-band, multi-day extravaganza that captured the spirit and imagination of a generation and a nation.
For five days, the bands and performers lived, slept, rehearsed and did countless unmentionable things aboard a customized train that traveled from Toronto to Calgary to Winnipeg, with each stop culminating in a mega-concert. The entire experience, both off-stage and on, was filmed but the extensive footage remained locked away - until now.
This long-lost material is combined with contemporary interviews nearly 35 years after it was first filmed.
