Woodstock 2009?

 
  • Woodstock 2009?

    Anyone knows for sure whether there will be 40th anniversary of this incredible music festival? I hope so. And I really hope it's not going to be all about profiting from this event. Let's hear your say...will you be going? who do you want to see?

  • Maybe (I'm currently in asia).
    Death Cab for Cutie, Fall Out Boy, Weezer, The Killers, Pearl Jam, Jimmy Eat World..much more ;)

  • Most of the groups that were in WS'69 are disbanded or too old to make a live play on a stage. And even if they did, they can't make such atmosphere and mood as it was in '69 , because people have changed. So no another Woodstock '69 is going to happen. As mr. Dylan said: " Times, they are a-changin` ".

  • Chief Woodstock promoter Michael Lang is planning two free Woodstock concerts in Berlin, Germany and in New York in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the original 1969 festival. According to the press release, the New York show still doesn’t have a venue, but will take place on the actual 40th anniversary of August 15th and 16th. The Berlin show will take place at the now-closed Tempelhof Airport on August 22nd and August 23rd.

    Lang and his partners are hoping to snag some of the original participants that performed at Yasgur’s Farm back in ‘69, including Santana, the Who, Joan Baez, Joe Cocker, Grateful Dead, Country Joe and the Fish, as well as current top acts.

  • Well that's just me. Who you two like to see then??


  • You can make as much Woodstocks as you want. But it'll be just a Woodstock, not the Woodstock. The Woodstock had its spirit. As you know, it was inspired by the war of Vietnam and hippie movement. And what's going to inspire it today? Global warming? Economical crisis? Haven't heard a song about these yet. Did you?

    check Korpiklaani's "Gods on Fire" for a song written about global warming.

    However, you're unfortunately right about the "a" Woodstock... Not "the", certainly.. Nevertheless, if conditions permit, and I happen to wish that moment, I'll try to "be" there - just for the sake of being, and listening the ones that were also present in '69. Maybe I'll see some real hippie there, still carrying tokens from the days of old ;)

    I agree. I wouldn't pay a cent to go watch Death Cab For Cutie. You need the likes of Hendrix, Santana, Dylan, The Who, Stones, Joplin, The Band but since that ain't possible then just leave it, don't go crap over something as historic as Woodstock.

    When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car.

  • the bands that should play a new woodstock

    are bands that have a lot of hits that can do big show with out have all the shit that happen at 99. and you need a place where you can feel the open love that is part of woodstock. you can not do woodstock 69 over it will never happen but you do a woodstock show for 2009. thech love peace how to care for the world take care of the things going on in todays world. look at the live earth show. we need to get people to think about what is going on. the beatles toal the world all you need is love. it is true love makes hate go away. with out no will be killed there will be no war people in neeed will be helped no one ever die becuse you do not worship the same god.we have other place in the world make nukes when there is a big no nukes show it worked befor can any of you name some big show that changed the world i can was at most of them.and will post them tomorrow but just want to see you can name then. and yes there can be new woodstock 09 woodstock stands for peace & love and we all need that . and the bands that would best show is the ones that need to there. here is a few i think should be there
    Bruse Springsteen, u2,kiss,the who, the stones,ac/dc, vanhelen. zz top,pink floyd,elp, and any band fron the 69 show that wants to there and a lot of 94 bands
    it should be a 3 day show there should be a fee to get in of like $69 bucks there should be free water and there should some low price foods and there should some free foods there big co. that give away samples in store this would the best way to give way samples. get a lot of people to try new foods. and the people runnig the show can all the money they need to make it happen off of ppv all over the world for the people who can not get to the show. in 94 they most there money off the ppv. and the 69 show the money off the movie lps that was sold so it can happen and needs to happen but in the rite way not like 99 where the only thing the people putting on the show had on there mind was money aqnd how much they could make. look that what it cost to see a band today there is no place for greed and the bands need to stop the greed only they can. the govrment needs to steep in and stop people from selling tickets at high prices and change it to the way it was years ago you get the ticket from the place you are going to see the show only. and that you can only get the anount of ticket you need for the show.limit the tickets to 2 per id you have to get them so if you got 3 kids and hubby and wify is going you show your id and you get two adult tickets and than you buy up two four kids ticket if is the type of show kids can go to. hope evey one that read this will help to make it happen

    Woodstock happened in 1969 and will never happen again.

    If we will ever have a festival like it again then people need to understand that it is in the past. It's spirit and its message however, resonates throughout time. Staging these anniversary festivals is not the way to keep that spirit alive. Woodstock was a symbol of youthful rebellion, so we betray it by living in the past. What we need is for some new bands to step up to the plate and to stage a new free festival. Of course this will never happen with the present state of music, and of the world in general.
    We need a new cause to rally around, just as the hippies of the 60s had Vietnam and the civil rights movement. I would say that the legalization of marijuana is the first step, as well as the withdrawal of Bristish and American forces from the middle-east. Neither of those things will stir passions in the way Vietnam did, but its a start. All it requires is a new young rock band to step up to the plate and to stir things up!

    Because this is all a dream we dreamed
    One afternoon long ago.
  • Wood stock 2014!

    There is one sad thing about woodstock... It will NEVER be as good as it was back in the 60s those days were the prime time of music, and I envy anyone that was alive durring that time. I would not want anyone from music now days there but maybe Red Hot Chilli Peppers. A Pink Floyd Reunion concert. Other than that bands now days don't deserve that honor.

    Love<3
