Woodstock 1969-2009

Woodstock veterans to headline anniversary show

Some performers from the 1969 Woodstock concert will get back to the garden for a 40th anniversary show this summer.

On the bill for the August 15 are The Levon Helm Band, Jefferson Starship, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Ten Years After, Canned Heat, Mountain, and Country Joe McDonald.

They'll perform at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel, New York. It was built on the site of the dairy farm trampled on by some 400,000 people on the weekend of August 14-17, 1969.

It includes an amphitheater and a museum up the hill from the original stage.

The returning acts feature some Woodstock veterans, including Helm, who performed in '69 with The Band.
