Bethel Woods Center For The Arts (BWCA), a non-profit cultural center located at the historic site of the 1969 Woodstock Festival in Bethel, New York, Live Nation, and INVNT, a global live brand storytelling agency, have announced Bethel Woods Music And Culture Festival: celebrating the golden anniversary at the historic site of the 1969 Woodstock festival. Taking place August 16-18, 2019 and held at BWCA just 90 minutes from New York City, the event is the successor to the original Woodstock in 1969, Woodstock 94, and Woodstock 99. Woodstock 99 had headliners such as Metallica, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against the Machine, Korn, Limp Bizkit, Alanis Morisette, Megadeth, and dozens of other bands across rock and heavy metal genres.
Darlene Fedun, CEO, BWCA commented:
“We are thrilled to partner with Live Nation and INVNT to produce Bethel Woods Music And Culture Festival. Fifty years ago, people gathered peacefully on our site inspired to change the world through music. As the stewards of this historic site, we remain committed to preserving this rich history and spirit, and to educating and inspiring new generations to contribute positively to the world through music, culture, and community.”
The three-day festival will utilize BWCA’s state-of-the-art venues and facilities. Entertainment villages and a number of bespoke performance areas will be specially created for the occasion. Full details of the event lineup, ticketing, non-musical experiences, and brand activity will be released soon.
