OZARK MOUNTAIN MUSIC FESTIVAL TRIBUTE POSTER 1974 19" X 13" Ready for Display, Shipped Flat, Bagged and Boarded by Grande Ballroom Poster Artist Carl Lundgren Printed In Detroit MI USA The Ozark Music Festival was held July 19–21, 1974 on the Missouri State Fairgrounds in Sedalia, Missouri. While the Woodstock Festival from 1969 is the most well-known rock festival, the Ozark Music Festival was one of the largest music festivals ever held. "No Hassles Guaranteed " was the motto of the festival. Some estimates have put the crowd count at 350,000 people. Lundgren had an early interest in becoming a fantasy artist and illustrator like Frank Frazetta, his idol. At the age of 18, he was co-chairman of the first multimedia science fiction convention, The Detroit Triple Fan Fair, featuring comics, movies and science fiction. He studied with the Famous Artists School correspondence course, for formal training. In 1967 Carl met rock poster artist Gary Grimshaw, who was illustrating posters for a Detroit rock venue, run by Russ Gibb, called the Grande Ballroom. Grimshaw offered him a job, and Carl went on to create poster art for seminal bands such as The Who, Jefferson Airplane and Pink Floyd.
