The Electric Trips festival took place late July 1966 at the PNE Auditorium in Vancouver BC, Canada. A cultural touchstone of the 1960s counterculture movement, and often cited as the first such event in Canada. Grateful Dead historians and dead heads alike often believe the taped dead sets as a highlight of their 60's documented performances. Featured performers include; The Grateful Dead, Big Brother and the Holding Company "w/ Janis Joplin", PH Phactor Jug Band, The Daily Flash and a great many others. He personally got this poster at the event, as he was one of the performers, projecting his self made films as part of the light show.
He would later pin this poster on a interior wall of his apartment in the Castro district for a short period of time before packing it away, and then later moving out of San Francisco in early 1968. In the ensuing years it has sat safely stored away for the last 50+ years untouched. This poster is 100% authentic, original and unrestored. Please look closely at the provided pictures as they are the actual item. Overall condition very good, with four pinholes, a very small light crease near the bottom, and a small section of material loss due to tape removal near the top in the middle, again PLEASE look closely at the pictures.
