Canada Jam was held at Mosport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada, about 100 kilometres east of Toronto, on August 26, 1978. The festival was produced by Sandy Feldman and Leonard Stogel, who produced California Jam and California Jam II in 1974 and 1978, down in, confusingly, Ontario, San Bernardino County, Southern California. Those two shows were massive sell-out successes and were filmed for TV too. They’re often cited as the two most lucrative shows of the era. So understandably, they thought they could repeat the trick north of the border.

It was sponsored by brewers, Carling O'Keefe, marking just how times had changed, compared to ten years earlier when no sponsor would touch a festival held in a muddy field for thousands of hippies with the proverbial barge pole. 

It attracted over 110,000 fans, making it the largest paying rock event in Canadian history at that time. 

Canada Jam was the second of three major music festivals held at Mosport between 1970 and 1980. The other two were the Woodstock-esque Strawberry Fields Festival held August 7–9, 1970 and the punk and new wave themed, Heatwave Festival held August 23, 1980. Both these festivals were produced by Toronto promoter John Brower who facilitated the introduction to Mosport Park for Feldman and Stogel.

Around 350 people were treated in the medical tent for fatigue, cuts and drug and alcohol-related ailments, but no major incidents or problems occurred. Tickets for the event sold for $20.00 in advance and $30.00 on the day of the event and the event grossed an estimated 2.5 million dollars. Feldmann and Stogel had done it again.

What they had realised was that to pull the big money for a one-dayer the key wasn’t to fill up the bill with also-rans but to make it heavy hitters and big up and comers. To that end the bill for Canada Jam was strong 

Ozark Mountain Daredevils, The Doobie Brothers, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Village People(!) Dave Mason, Wha-Koo (a band featuring David Palmer who had sung on the first Steely Dan album and who had a current single in the charts), Prism, Kansas, Commodores and Triumph headlined, ending their set at 3.30am!

Four television specials were made from the event and broadcast across the CTV television network in Canada. Those broadcasts were turned into many bootleg albums, of course, the best of which is probably Triumph’s imperious set.

Returns & Exchanges

If you need to change size or colour or design, or just fancy a refund, it’s all cool. I can sort all of this out for you. 

But, as of 8th Jan 2024 we have had to introduce a handling fee of £5 for returns, which will be deducted from your refund.
All our shirts are printed to order, so it means we have a lot of wasted stock when we make a size exchange, or if someone orders two sizes in order to return one.
Please note, you will also need to pay your own return shipping. 

So before ordering - please measure your size and choose correctly -  see size chart 

When returning an item it must arrive with us in it’s original condition. Wearing it down the pub on a Friday night out, getting it covered in Guinness and setting light to it via a badly rolled reefer, then returning it on Monday, is understandable, but not allowed by the karma pixies who govern our lives. And we don't want to upset the karma pixies now, do we? 

If your item is in any way faulty then please contact me immediately, send a photo of the issue and I will get a replacement organised. For clarity, the concept of faulty does not include stains from a lamb dhansak you have spilled down yourself after consuming 8 pints of lager.  For faulty items there will be no return fee.

Before making a return, please email me with your order number, and what you want to happen - a refund, or a different size/colour/design. I can then make it happen because I am all powerful, can change my clothes in a phone box and can fire spider webs from places I didn't know I even had. Possibly.

You will always be dealing with me, Johnny, because DJTees is so small and niche that I do all admin. Don't worry, I don't bite, or at least not unless you are a sausage. I do bite sausages.

If you'd love a t-shirt but are totally skint, drop me a line and I'll see what I can do. 


We print everything to order and don't hold any stock of anything. That would be mad. Almost all orders are printed within 2 or 3 working days (this doesn't include weekends and public holidays), occasionally as long as 4 days if we have run out of a size or colour t-shirt and stock is delayed in arriving.
