The town of Bethel, New York, is planning a golden anniversary celebration of the Woodstock festival. The Bethel Woods Center for the Arts announced the gathering on Thursday (Dec. 27), revealing that the three-day event (Aug. 16-18), "Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival: Celebrating the golden anniversary at the historic site of the 1969 Woodstock festival," will feature as-yet-unnamed musical performers, as well as TED-style talks.
The event will be put on by Live Nation Concerts and INVNT, with a line-up and ticketing information available soon, according to the Center's website. "This pan-generational music, culture, and community event will be held at BWCA just 90 minutes from New York City. These three days of memorable experiences will include live performances from prominent and emerging artists spanning multiple genres and decades, and TED-style talks from leading futurists and retro-tech experts," read the announcement. "Festival goers will also be able to visit the Museum at Bethel Woods, which tells the story of the 1960s through immersive media, interactive engagements, and artifacts from the 1969 festival, as well as experience the special 2019 exhibit We Are Golden: Reflections on the 50th Anniversary of the Woodstock Festival and Aspirations for an Aquarian Future."
