ORIGINAL FIRST PRINTING POSTER , THIS IS WAS THE BOX OFFICE COPY , VERY RARE ONLY ONE. SIZE AROUND 17 X 23. SOME INFO ABOUT THE FESTIVAL. Most memorable performances included the Congress of Wonders and the unannounced performance by the Grateful Dead, a favorite band from that day on (most of the books about the Dead omit that lovely performance). Sky River set the stage for more festivals in coming years.Among the bands and performers booked for the festival were Santana, Big Mama Thornton, James Cotton, Country Joe and the Fish, Richard Pryor, Dino Valenti, Byron Pope, Its a Beautiful Day, Peanut Butter Conspiracy, Alice Stuart Thomas, the Youngbloods, the New Lost City Ramblers, and local groups such as Juggernaut and Easy Chair. The Lighter Than Air Fair referred to the hot-air balloon rides which were offered as part of the festivities. Overall, the event proved to be a stunning success, likely beyond what the organizers first imagined. Some 13,000 paying customers were joined by several thousand gate-crashers. Yes, it rained but no one seemed to mind.
On the last day of the festival, September 2, the Grateful Dead arrived unscheduled and unexpected. They reportedly heard about the festival by word of mouth earlier that weekend and flew up to Seattle just in time to perform. Their performance was recorded on the festivals soundboard and can be heard online at YouTube.
