Woodstock goes again to the place all of it started to mark its 50th anniversary.
Bethel Woods Heart for the Arts, which sits on the land that hosted the long-lasting Woodstock Music and Artwork Truthful in 1969, will have a good time the milestone with — what else — stay music.
On Aug. 16-18, 2019, Bethel Woods, Dwell Nation and INVNT will current “Bethel Woods Music and Tradition Pageant: Celebrating the golden anniversary on the historic website of the 1969 Woodstock competition.” It’s described as a “pan-generational music, tradition and neighborhood occasion” that includes stay music performances and TED-style talks “from main futurists and retro-tech specialists.”
Along with the present venues at Bethel Woods, leisure villages and quite a few custom-built efficiency areas might be created for the competition.
The unique Woodstock befell on a dairy farm within the Catskill Mountains north of New York Metropolis on Aug. 15-18, 1969, drawing greater than 400,000 folks and that includes performances by Joan Baez, Santana, Janis Joplin, the Grateful Useless, The Who, The Band, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Younger and Jimi Hendrix. It was listed by Rolling Stone as one of many 50 Moments That Modified the Historical past of Rock and Roll.
The occasion was captured in Oscar-winning 1970 documentary film Woodstock, an accompanying soundtrack album, and Joni Mitchell’s music “Woodstock”. In 2017, the competition website was listed on the Nationwide Register of Historic Locations.
