THE SPIRIT OF WOODSTOCK – Free event
August 15 @ 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm
THE SPIRIT OF WOODSTOCK – FIFTY YEAR ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION
The Woodstock festival opened in New York State on 15th August 1969 at Max Yasgur’s farm.
We’re gonna celebrate the 50th anniversary of the opening day of the most famous festival in rock music history.
It’s a free event featuring some wonderful artists and bands. Check out the line up below.
Meanwhile here’s the final song of the opening act at Woodstock – Richie Havens held the crowed for nearly three hours as artists scheduled to follow him were delayed reaching the festival location. He was called back for several encores. Having run out of tunes, he improvised a song based on the old spiritual “Motherless Child” that became “Freedom”. It’s a classic performance.
