In 2019, the musical and cultural revolution that ushered in with the 1969 Woodstock music festival returns to the Hudson Valley during the highly-anticipated 50th anniversary celebration. Dubbed the Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival, the three-day event will take place at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts (BWCA) from August 16 to 18.
In addition to what should be an impressive lineup of musicians and artists spanning genres and decades, the BWCA will host TED-style talks from leading futurists and retro-tech experts.
Attendees to the festival can also visit the Museum at Bethel Woods, where the zeitgeist of the 1960s is reborn through immersive media, interactive installations, and artifacts from Woodstock ’69. A new exhibit, We Are Golden: Reflections on the 50th Anniversary of the Woodstock Festival and Aspirations for an Aquarian Future, will be open as well.
“Fifty years ago, people gathered peacefully on our site inspired to change the world through music,” says Darlene Fedun, CEO, BWCA. “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.”
