I can't believe there's no thread on this today. I always remember, my birthday's on woodstock anniversary every year and most of those bands who played are some of my faves. Best. Concert. Ever.

Rent the Michael Wadleigh documentary DVD. The soundtrack alone is a classic keeper.

Bonnaroo is definitely a hell of a time with a ton of great music but it doesn't even compare to Woodstock. If I could go back in time for one thing it would probably be this. EPIC.

Since when is Bonnaroo decidedly better than Lollapalooza?

Since when does any modern music festival that costs hundreds to attend while being packed with marketing even come close to something as groundbreaking as Woodstock? Even if you ignore the social impact of Woodstock, the musical acts alone pretty much top any festival I've ever seen come and go while I was alive.

Not only did Woodstock have legendary performers, but it also had 400,000 people attending. That amount of people and the culture itself are spectacles.

Per the History Channel feature Woodstock: Then & Now last night, Carlos Santana said he was peaking on mescaline when he was doing the Soul Sacrifice guitar solo & thought his guitar was a snake, remarkable he played so well on pure instinct. They did not show the band who was the consensus show-stealer, Alvin Lee & 10 Yrs. After playing Going Home, & they should have. THC does its usual excellent job on this landmark event, I noted they said Hendrix insisted on closing out the festival by playing Star-Spangled Banner & became an instant classic that transcends Boomers, Gen Xers & even Gen Yers. And where was Canned Heat, playing Refried Hockey Boogie? Where was Mountain?

Burning Man is an Alternative art fest in Black Rock City, NV every Labor Day, btw, not a music fest.

Also 40th anniversaries this summer of the 1st landing on the moon & the Tate/LaBianca Charles Manson murders & the Helter Skelter summer in LA.
