The 14 hr Technicolour Dream

14-Hour-Technicolor-Dream Mike McInnerney Poster
Set up as a fund raiser to help International Times magazine, the hastily-organised event took place in the Alexandra Palace in North London with stages at each end competing sonically for dominance and a huge line up of the counter culture’s who’s who of the day. Reports vary as to how successful it was, it probably depended what drugs you were on but ultimately it raised very little despite thousands attending. Large numbers of tickets were either stolen or given out with payment required later, a news piece in the next issue of IT berating dishonest resellers who had not yet paid up.
The main poster by Mike McInnerney was printed in a variety of fading ‘split fountain’ colours making it highly collectable. Beware of fakes which have separated colour combinations and John Lennon‘s name added to the line up near the bottom of the list, he was there as a punter but was never down to perform.
