The Woodstock Festival has become a rock staple ever since its first concert, which was held from August 15 to August 18, 1969. An astounding 32 musicians (such as Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix, and many more) performed at what is considered by many to be the best concert in history.

To commemorate Woodstock’s 40th anniversary, Equal4All is dedicating the whole month of August to the beloved festival. Activities in memorial of the first festival will sure be held all over the world. One, specifically, that is being held in Kent (UK), will welcome two people that participated in the original festival: Robin Williamson of The Incredible String Band and Barry Melton of Country Joe and the Fish.

Within the next few weeks, E4A will showcase music from the swinging 60s, share 10 tips on how to turn any room into an authentic hippie pad, and offer many other groovy articles sure to bring out the flower child in all of you. Stay Tuned!
