While a few of us have but to recuperate from the trauma of Woodstock ’99, it’s that point once more to go on celebrating the original. For its 50th anniversary, Woodstock will return to the place all of it started, Bethel Woods, New York, for an additional three days of debauchery subsequent August. Though, maybe having discovered a factor or two from its, ummm, troublesome historical past, it’s aiming to be a extra peacefully deliberate affair. In addition to the music — there’s no lineup but, however we think about it’ll be open name to all boomer bands, except maybe the Who — there’ll be “TED-style talks” from “main futurists” and “retro-tech consultants.” Which is to say, if that one eccentric uncle of yours who solely communicates in morse code and microdoses religiously goes lacking for a weekend subsequent summer season, simply road-trip it upstate and also you’re sure to seek out him onstage forming a cult. There can even be entry to the Bethel Woods museum, with a brand new ridiculously long-titled exhibit to commemorate the anniversary, plus “leisure villages” and “bespoke efficiency areas.” Coachella, who?
