Just some info for people that might be interested on what is going on at the actual site of Woodstock next week.

August 15, 2019 5pm
Free and open to all ages

On August 15, 2019, join us, Woodstock Alumni, and extraordinary guests for a free screening of the Warner Bros. Academy-Award winning documentary, Woodstock: The Director's Cut on the historic festival field to celebrate the anniversary on the very same site where the festival took place fifty years ago. To add to the festivities, Woodstock alum Arlo Guthrie will perform prior to the film screening, fifty years to the day he appeared at the festival.

Projected on a giant 50-ft screen with state-of-the-art-sound, the 3.5 hour film is the next best thing to being there. All ages are welcome, but please note that the film is 4 hours long and is rated "R".

August 16, 2019

Ringo Starr and his Allstar Band:

The 2019 All Starr Band feature Steve Lukather (Toto), Colin Hay (Men at Work), Gregg Rolie (Santana/Journey), Warren Ham, Gregg Bissonette and the return of All Starr alum Hamish Stuart (Average White Band). For one night only, Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band will be joined by special guests and Woodstock alumni, The Edgar Winter Band and Blood, Sweat & Tears who are returning to the historic site as part of Bethel Woods Season of Song & Celebration Anniversary Weekend on Friday, August 16.

Wow, that looks like a really fun weekend!

I think I just saw that documentary last night on PBS if that's the same one. There's a lot of neat footage and interviews on it.

No it is not the same documentary Lee. I saw the same PBS show which was about 2hours and agree it had great crowd footage and interviews with Michael Lang and others.

The documentary being shown at this year's Woodstock celebration is the 2009 Directors cut you can purchase at Amazon.

While you're there too, the Woodstock Museum is a pretty cool place to visit.

Also, The Band's Big Pink house is in the area and worth checking out, and if you've got the cash you can even rent it out as it's now a BnB.

I think this is a better way to celebrate the 50th anniversary, a whole week with artists who actually performed at the original, not a new festival with people who weren't even there, or people who don't play some good rock music.
