Next year marks the 50th anniversary of Woodstock. Several celebratory events are said to be in the works, including a festival thrown by Woodstock co-founder Michael Lang. Now comes word of a new, Live Nation-backed event to take place on the site of Woodstock’s original festival grounds.
The Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival is scheduled for August 16th-18th — 50 years to the weekend of the original Woodstock — at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel, New York.
According to the festival’s website, the self-described “pan-generational cultural event” will feature “three days of memorable experiences” including “live performances from prominent and emerging artists spanning multiple genres and decades, and TED-style talks from leading futurists and retro-tech experts.”
Further details, including the festival’s lineup, ticketing, and non-musical experiences, will be announced in the near future.
