Woodstock is coming to Williamsburg!

The Brooklyn Mirage | 140 Stewart Ave | Williamsburg

The new outdoor venue in East Williamsburg, The Brooklyn Mirage, hosts 2 More Days of 1969: The 48th Anniversary Reunion
with Arlo Guthrie, Billy Cox, Leslie West, Melanie, Wavy Gravy, Artie Kornfeld, & Special Guests on Friday, August 18, and Saturday, August 18, 2017.

The weekend will kick off August 18 with Woodstock co-creator/promoter Artie Kornfeld talking about the significance of Woodstock. Originally from Bensonhurst, Kornfeld says he’s coming back to Brooklyn to bring “the spirit of Woodstock into the hearts of today’s Brooklyn audience.” Following the talk by music biz legend and renowned public speaker, a special cut of the Academy Award-winning documentary Woodstock will be screened.

Along with Wavy Gravy, the original emcee of Woodstock 1969, Kornfeld will host day two (August 19) of 2 More Days of 1969 featuring original performers from the iconic festival. The all-star line-up includes Woodstock veterans - celebrated folk star Arlo Guthrie, legendary singer-guitarist Leslie West performing the music of Mountain, Billy Cox & Band of Gypsys (three remaining members of Jimi Hendrix’s Woodstock band) and Melanie, the first lady of Woodstock.

“Everywhere I go I hear people crying out for something like what we did in 1969,” says Kornfeld, author of The Pied Piper of Woodstock. “While we can never duplicate Woodstock, this August 18-19, we’re going to try to come close. I’m coming home to Brooklyn for a reason – to remind today’s generation of their power. It’s time for them to step up and make themselves heard. The people are Woodstock.”
