It is the anniversary of the most momentous weekend of peace, love and music that ever took place: Woodstock. Though the music and arts festival took place between August 15th and the morning of August 18th in upstate New York, many believe that the festival was a microcosm of an entire generation. As such, the spirit of the event can never be re-created...but at the center of it allwas the music, and the music remains.
Though there are no recordings from the festival in the Concert Vault, we did our best here to re-create the entire weekend's worth of music. Of the 32 acts to perform at the festival, there are 23 with live concert material in the Vault. Those 23 are presented here in the order they played during the weekend. We've also tried to choose songs that were included in their Woodstock setlists, though these were not always available.
It's no Yasgur's Farm, but the music can still set you free.
