Celebrating 50 years since the 1969 Woodstock Festival!
Organizers behind the 1969 Woodstock Festival have announced plans to mark Woodstock’s 50th anniversary later this year.
The 1969 festival happened at Bethel, New York in August 15-18, 1969 and attracted an estimated 400,000 people! Some performers were Jimi Hendrix, The Who and Janis Joplin!
A 50th anniversary festival will be held this summer and promises to be “the only authorised commemoration of the iconic 1969 festival”.
The three-day Woodstock Music and Arts Fair 2019 takes place August 16-18 on a 1000-acre site in Watkins Glen, upstate New York (rather than in Bethel)! This includes over 60 acts (apparently consisting of the “biggest names and emerging talent in rock, hip hop, pop and country”) set to play across three main stages.
The first acts on the bill will be announced next month.
