Together with Live Nation Concerts and INVNT we are joining forces to produce Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival: Celebrating the golden anniversary at the historic site of the 1969 Woodstock festival! This pan-generational cultural event will feature live music, TED-style talks and special exhibits.
Line-up and tickets announced soon.
Coming August 16-18, 2019, this pan-generational music, culture, and community event will be held at BWCA just 90 minutes from New York City. These three days of memorable experiences will include live performances from prominent and emerging artists spanning multiple genres and decades, and TED-style talks from leading futurists and retro-tech experts. Festival goers will also be able to visit the Museum at Bethel Woods, which tells the story of the 1960s through immersive media, interactive engagements, and artifacts from the 1969 festival, as well as experience the special 2019 exhibit We Are Golden: Reflections on the 50th Anniversary of the Woodstock Festival and Aspirations for an Aquarian Future.
“We are thrilled to partner with Live Nation and INVNT to produce Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival,” said Darlene Fedun, CEO, BWCA. “Fifty years ago, people gathered peacefully on our site inspired to change the world through music. As the stewards of this historic site, we remain committed to preserving this rich history and spirit, and to educating and inspiring new generations to contribute positively to the world through music, culture, and community.”
The three-day festival will utilize BWCAs’ state-of-the-art venues and facilities. Entertainment villages and a number of bespoke performance areas will be specially created for the occasion. Full details of the event line-up, ticketing, non-musical experiences, and brand activity will be released soon.

Money. The only reason this is happening. Rock and Roll is a quarter century past its freshness date. Woodstock was vibrancy with new groups ascending. Woodstock 2019 would be nothing but rank nostalgia. I'll bet there's super VIP packages so the old farts (like me) with money (someone else) can sit comfortably up front in air conditioned tents with espressos on demand. (Please don't drink the brown IPA craft beer).
Even the groups that played in '94 are nostalgia acts now. There aren't enough new, decent groups to fill out one day, let alone three. To have any cred they'd have to search the world over for exciting new sounds.

someone just googled "current musical acts" and cut and pasted the results.
