Woodstock art
Jimi Hendrix

In August 1969, the Woodstock Music & Art Fair took place on a dairy farm in Bethel, in upstate New York. Over half a million people came to the 600-acre farm to hear thirty-two acts play over the course of four days. Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix, the Grateful Dead, the Who, Janis Joplin and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young were among the headliners. Woodstock is known as one of the pivotal moments in popular music history. 

This August, a 50th anniversary staging of the iconic festival, with headliners like Robert Plant and Santana will take place the 16th- 18th at Watkins Glen International Speedway, New York. If you can't make the event, but would still like to relive Woodstock's days of love & peace, head for the Museum at Bethel Woods - a truly immersive Woodstock experience located on the original site of Woodstock.  

On March 30th, the museum will present a special 2019 exhibit 'We Are Golden: Reflections on the 50th Anniversary of The Woodstock Festival & Aspirations for a Peaceful Future.' This exhibit will examine the aspirations of youth living in 1969 and includes authentic Woodstock artefacts such as Jack Casady of Jefferson Airplane's bass guitar and world-class photographs from the 15 best photographers of the festival.
