Poster originally made in May, 1971. Ironically, many of the promoted acts never took the stage. The festival, conceived as a Southern "Woodstock," was plagued by scheduling problems, delays, insufficient food, water and shelter, and at least four deaths (including the impalement of a stagehand setting up the event and 3 drownings in the nearby Atchafalaya River). Poster housed in a contemporary black metal frame. Sight – 27 1/4" H x 21 3/4" W. Framed – 33 1/4" H x 27 1/4" W.
