Many stories have been told regarding the 1969 Woodstock Festival, and for good reason, as the legendary artists involved combined with the free spirit of the event can act as a historic marker in the world of music. That’s why it’s exciting to hear that the original organisers of the festival have announced plans for an official anniversary festival to mark the 50 years that have passed since it took place.

Specifically, Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Janis Joplin and Sly and The Family Stone were just a few names that took to the stage between the 15th and 18th of August back in the year that we first touched down on the moon, now 50 years later Michael Lang, the co-founder and co-producer of the original Woodstock, has promised that we can expect a three-day Woodstock Music and Arts Fair 2019 to be held from August the 16th to the 18th on a 1000-acre site in Watkins Glen, upstate New York instead of the original site in Bethel, with over 60 acts who are apparently consisting of the “biggest names and emerging talent in rock, hip hop, pop and country” .

Take a look at Woodstock’s own official Instagram post below if you are excited about the event.
