There are at least TWO different versions of this poster, this is the WHITE STOCK version.

ULTRA-UNCOMMON 1970 Festival poster from a mostly-forgotten Canadian event. While not all of the acts listed on the poster appeared, most of them did- including Jethro Tull, Grand Funk and most famously, Sly & the Family Stone, who closed out the event with a 5:30 AM set.
