Original Woodstock Site to Host 50th Anniversary Festival

Three days of peace and music will be held in August 2019 at the original Woodstock concert site to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the historic event.

The concert venue that was built on the original Woodstock site, the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, announced earlier this week that it will host the festival Aug. 16-18 in Bethel, NY.

Performers will be announced "soon" and will include "prominent and emerging artists spanning multiple genres and decades."

More than 400,000 people attended the original Woodstock Music and Arts Fair between Aug. 15-17, 1969. It took place on Max Yasgur's farm in Bethel, 85 miles northwest of New York City.
