The summer of 1969 was home to one of music’s most influential moments–Woodstock. The three day August festival was held in the Catskill Mountains, Northwest of New York City, which was named a historic landmark and is now called the Bethel Woods Center For The Arts. Artists who performed there have gone down in history; The Grateful Dead, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin to name a few. A three day pass to this once in a lifetime historic experience cost only $18! The festival also featured art, a bazaar, and workshops for poetry, guitar, and other passions.
2019 marks the fiftieth anniversary of Woodstock, during which The Bethel Woods Center For The Arts, Live Nation, and INVNT is hosting another festival in its honor on August 16th-18th, 2019. No artists have been announced yet, but the lineup surely will do the past justice. In a recent announcement, the Bethel Woods Center posted, “This pan-generational cultural event will feature live music, TED-style talks and special exhibits.”
