Selected Photos from the 2017 Festival of Rock Posters

On November 12, 2017, in Events, Photos, by Ben Marks

Well, it took me a while to edit all the photos supplied by Loretta Baraona, Glen Beebe, Emi Ito, and Ron Schaeffer, and even at that I know we have missed lots of people. But, for better or worse, here is a gallery of images from the 2017 Festival of Rock Posters at the Hall of Flowers. Thanks again to all who showed up and helped make everything happen—to paraphrase David Nelson, it always takes a long line of dedicated maniacs to get this birdy off the ground. And stay tuned in the first of the year for news about Rock Art by the Bay in the summer of 2018.


Festival of Rock Posters 2017 Was One for the Books

On October 29, 2017, in Events, by Ben Marks

Well, the 2017 Festival of Rock Posters is almost over—I say “almost” because this morning some of us will be unloading all the grids and gear that it takes to put on the show. In the next few days, we’ll post lots of photos of one of our best-attended shows ever, but for now, we just want to thank all the people who attended, with a big thanks to all the artists and vendors who made the show so great, and a HUGE thanks the all the volunteers who pitched in (and are still pitching in!) all weekend long. Thanks, everybody!


Artist Relief Trust Poster for 2017 by Chuck Sperry

TRPS, Festival of Rock Posters, 2017, by Chuck Sperry

This year’s Artist Relief Trust poster, the proceeds of which benefit the charitable work of The Rock Poster Society, is by Chuck Sperry. It will be available at the Festival of Rock Posters on Saturday October 28. We could not be happier with this 7-color, 20-by-35-inch beauty. Thanks so much, Chuck!

Since this piece is likely to be in high demand, and because we will only be selling one per customer, we are going to do the numbered tickets at the door a little bit differently this year. As in year’s past, people in line will still be able to choose a numbered ticket for Emek, Chuck Sperry, or Marq Spusta—please note that you can only choose one ticket for one artist on your way in the door. The first 20 or so of these numbers for each artist will be mixed up “lottery” style, which means everyone has an equal chance of getting a high number for one of these artists, regardless of how long they have been waiting in line. Once the “lottery” numbers are gone, the next person in line will get 21, then 22, and so forth.

This year, people can also get a TRPS numbered ticket for our Artist Relief Trust poster by Chuck Sperry. Just to spell it out, that means that on your way in the door, you can get numbered tickets for Emek and TRPS, or Spusta and TRPS, or Sperry and TRPS.

See you at the show!

The 2017 Festival of Rock Posters is just about a week away, so that means it’s probably way too late to renew your TRPS membership before the show, right?

Wrong! You can renew your membership right now at TRPS.org. When you get to the show, we’ll have your name at the door so that you only have to pay the member entrance fee of $5 (instead of $20 from 10-11, and $10 from 11-3). And your new membership card, membership packet, and T-shirt will be waiting for you at the TRPS table.

So renew your membership now, and we’ll see you at the show!
