In August 1969, the Woodstock Music & Art Fair took place on a dairy farm in Bethel, NY. Over half a million people came to a 600-acre farm to hear 32 leading and emerging performers of the time play over the course of four days (August 15-18).
Jimi Hendrix, the Grateful Dead, the Who, Santana, Janis Joplin, The Band, Joan Baez and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young were among the line-up. The Woodstock Festival will celebrate its 50th Anniversary in 2019, with events and celebrations planned to mark the continuing historic significance of the event.
"…The authenticity of Woodstock resonates with a wide segment of the population like no other brand," said Michael Lang, a principal of Woodstock Cannabis Company and one of the producers of the original festival.
"Together we are going to deliver an incredible consumer experience."
