Three days of peace was the promise to all when Woodstock was originally promoted 1969.
At the festival’s forefront stood Jimi Hendrix with his rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner, a pregnant Joan Baex, and 20 year-old drummer Michael Shrieve: forming some of the most iconic moments in pop culture history. This week, Michael Lang, Woodstock’s original promoter, officially announced an anniversary festival that’s making that same promise, 50 years later.
Everything We Know So Far
Amongst the star-studded musical acts set to perform are legends Santana, Country Joe McDonald, Dead & Company (original members of the Grateful Dead), David Crosby, and Neil Young. The headliners include Miley Cyrus, Jay-Z, The Black Keys, Imagine Dragons, Halsey, Janelle Monae, Chance the Rapper and The Killers. Whether or not the aftermath falls in line with its predecessor, Woodstock 50 is likely to be one of the most talked about musical events of the year.
We will be looking forward to seeing how fashion will be intermixed with this monumental cultural moment.
