This Chuck Berry original poster is appearing in our auction for the first time! It was produced to advertise a June 1970 three day festival at Steven's Point in Madison Wisconsin. This fantastic lineup included Chuck Berry, Buddy Rich, Johnny Winter, Steve Miller, and many more! The promoters had set up a system of checkpoints to keep out those without tickets in order to prevent the usual descent into it being a free festival. "The scene was the beginning of a big pot party," one reporter wrote later about the event.
