Woodstock 2019 CANCELLED

No other festival in the world is as iconic as Woodstock. For most of us born way after it was the hottest thing on the planet, the idea of being able to attend such a legendary moment in rock and roll history is nothing more than a pipe dream. But dream no more: Woodstock 2019 the 50th Anniversary is coming your way, a reincarnation that is set to be as massive and epic as ever.

The biggest attendance recorded in the original event was around 400,000 people. To put things in perspective, Coachella, perhaps our generation’s most famous festival, has a capacity of just 99,000 each weekend. So yes, this one is going to be a festival of epic proportions.

Headliners for the original event in Bethel included no less than Jimi Hendrix, the Grateful Dead, The Who, Sly and the Family Stone, Jefferson Airplane, and Janis Joplin. Downpour ensued, but back then, people didn’t mind. Could it have been the psychedelics? Unforgettable performances by Crosby, Stills and Nash, Joe Cocker, and Santana made the crowd go crazy, resulting in a day that has been forever been enshrined in the history of American rock and roll. It wasn’t until 1994 that another Woodstock was held, this time at the Winston Farm in Saugerties, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the event.

Over 550,000 people attended the 1994 event, which featured performances by Blues Traveler, Live, Collective Soul, Orbital, Metallica, Nine Inch Nails, Sheryl Crow, Cypress Hill, The Cranberries, and Joe Cocker among others. Then the 1999 Woodstock followed, held at upstate New York in Rome, attended by around 400,000 people. Performers included Vertical Horizon, The String Cheese Incident, The Roots, James Brown, Jamiroquai, DMX, Bush, Korn, and The Chemical Brothers.

‘You might not have been around back then, but Woodstock 2019 makes the dream of every festival goer come true.’

Bringing the world’s most legendary festival back to life will be a large number of talented musicians and performers. Day one will see popular names such as The Killers, Miley Cyrus, Santana and The Lumineers take to the stage. Day two will welcome the likes of Chance the Rapper, Portugal The Man, Dead & Company and more. The final day will showcase Jay-Z, Imagine Dragons, Halsey and more.

Those that attended the original, and many in our generation, are anticipated to attend the event. This will no doubt result in an atmosphere of peace, love, and happiness – don’t miss it!

    Not only did I attend the 1969 Music Festival at 18 years old, but my best friend to this day Artie Kornfeld was one of the organizers along with Michael Lang, John Robert & Joel Rosenman. Artie wrote a book titled “The Pied Piper of Woodstock” a must read for everyone whether you attended or not. Artie & his wife Linda kicked off the Festival, Artie being shirtless, wearing only a vest & jeans with Linda (RIP) by his side. Today Artie does a Podcast from his home, ArtistFirst. com, Check it out! Hope to see you all there…..
