This might be the biggest live music event in a long time.
It’s been 50 years since the likes of Jimmy, Janis, The Who, Grateful Dead, and many other legends rocked out, some in the pouring rain, on a dairy farm in Bethel, NY. Now, 50 years later, it’s happening again!
The latest word is that it will take place August 16-18, the same weekend as the original festival in 1969.
There will actually be two fests! The Bethel Woods and Cultural Festival will take place where the original Woodstock took place on August 16-18, and another festival organized by the original producer of Woodstock, Michael Lang. Lang released this statement about Woodstock:
“While the original site in Bethel remains close to our hearts, it simply doesn’t have the capacity to host our official Woodstock 50 celebration. We’ll soon be announcing a new location that can handle all the peace, love and music we’ve got planned. Stay tuned.”
Although no artists have been announced for the event, would you go to the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock? If you could go to a major event from the past, which event would it be?
