After months of speculation, it’s finally official: A festival celebrating the 50th anniversary of Woodstock is on.
Like the legendary event, the concert will be held in Bethel, New York, and will span a few days, August 16 – 18, 2019. Only this time around, organizers have selected a decidedly more cumbersome name: “Bethel Woods Music And Culture Festival: Celebrating the Golden Anniversary at the Historic Site of the 1969 Woodstock Festival.”
An announcement released Thursday reveals the festival is expected to include exhibits, a Woodstock museum, presentations by leading futurists and retro-tech experts and, of course, “performances from prominent and emerging artists spanning multiple genres and decades.” Exactly who those artists will be remains up in the air.
