Rock Hall Celebrates Woodstock’s 50th Anniversary with New Exhibit and Special Rock Hall Nights
Relive the Iconic Music Festival with Rock Hall Inductees and Woodstock Performers Freddie Stone of Sly & The Family Stone and Michael Carabello of Santana on May 1st
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is bringing peace, love and music to fans during Woodstock’s 50th anniversary. On May 1st, fans can relive the iconic music festival with a new Woodstock 50 exhibit (open through Fall 2019) and special Woodstock themed Rock Hall Nights with Inductees and Woodstock performers Freddie Stone of Sly & The Family Stone and Michael Carabello of Santana.
It’s been nearly 50 years since Woodstock generated legendary musical moments and catapulted an entire festival culture. Groups and artists such as Sly & The Family Stone, Jefferson Airplane, The Who, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and many others defined a new set of sound. Woodstock 50 celebrates the ambition and ingenuity of those who mounted the festival to the performers who played it gaining a deeper understanding of the various faces of Woodstock and how it changed the music industry forever.
The new Woodstock 50 exhibit features rare prints, performance outfits, video footage, tickets, original signage and more. Highlights include:
A photo exhibit with rare prints, contact sheets and never-before-seen artifacts from renowned photographer Jim Marshall’s archive including his earliest Leica M4 camera used to photograph Woodstock. Marshall captured the festival’s most raw and intimate moments from the three-day festival. The Rock Hall is the only museum in the country celebrating Woodstock with Marshall’s collection.
Jimi Hendrix (1992 Rock Hall Inductee) guitar strap used at Woodstock 1969 to deliver a mesmerizing set featuring his rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” to a dwindling crowd of 180,000 who toughed it through the last hours of Woodstock, along with his handwritten lyrics to “Voodoo Chile (Slight Return),” the last song he would ever perform live.
Hand-drawn map of festival grounds with aerial views highlighting prominent locations and a telegram from festival organizer Michael Lang envisioning the event documented from every angle with plans to secure the filming and clearance for showing footage after the festival.
Rare video footage from the Rock Hall collection captured during Woodstock ’69 with candid moments offering new perspectives of festival goers.
John Sebastian (2000 Rock Hall Inductee) of the Lovin’ Spoonful performance outfit from his unscheduled appearance at Woodstock. He traveled to the festival as a spectator but was asked to appear when the organizers suddenly needed an acoustic performer after a rain break.
Billie Joe Armstrong (2015 Rock Hall Inductee) shoes worn at Woodstock ’94, nicknamed “Mudstock” partly due to Green Day’s performance. Days of rain turned the venue into a field of mud and as Armstrong taunted the audience with “I don’t care what you do, I don’t want to be a mud hippie like you,” an enormous mud fight ensued.
Woodstock 50 opens May 1 with a special Rock Hall Nights: Woodstock program that evening from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. EST. Fan can meet Rock Hall Inductees and Woodstock performers Freddie Stone of Sly & The Family Stone and Michael Carabello of Santana, challenge their friends to Woodstock trivia, explore artifacts from the Rock Hall’s Library and Archives, check out Woodstock 50, Hendrix and San Francisco exhibits, make a flower headband, take pictures in a festival photo booth, and enjoy screenings of Woodstock artist highlights from the Induction ceremony stage as well as a director’s cut of the documentary film Woodstock. This is the last Rock Hall Nights of the season. The monthly program will return in the fall with new themes and activities.
Purchase a special $20 online only ($34 value) Rock Hall Nights ticket which includes access to exhibits between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., a VIP check-in, complimentary drink voucher and free giveaways. Metered parking is available surrounding the Museum and is free after 6 p.m. daily. Rock Hall Members and City of Cleveland residents (ID required at box office) can attend for free.

A New Annual Multidisciplinary Festival during Miami Art Week, from December 3-9, 2018.
The First Faena Festival explores the mythologies and narratives of ‘America’ and commissions new installations and performances that reflect the multiplicity of cultures, voices, and people across its physical, conceptual, and political borders.
Faena Festival: This Is Not America features commissions, installations, and performances by Derrick Adams, Cecilia Bengolea, Alfredo Jaar, Isabel Lewis, Luna Paiva, Tavares Strachan, and Wu Tsang and boychild, among others.
Faena Festival, This Is Not America, is keyed to Miami’s enduring role as a port that welcomes migrants, refugees, and tourists from across the US and the Americas, and from countries throughout the world. The festival engages with the multiplicity of communities and cultures and the palimpsest of histories that have created the Americas while responding specifically to Miami as its hemispheric hub. All programming is free and open to the public.
This Is Not America is anchored by Alfredor Jaar’s groundbreaking work, A Logo for America, and proposes a new curatorial format for presentation that occupies and engages the entire Faena District and extends beyond into public spaces of the city of Miami Beach as an experiential platform. The diverse venues of the Faena District Miami Beach will be activated, including the public areas of the street, sidewalk, and beach; the Faena Hotel, including its theater and screening room; and Faena Forum – the OMA-designed cultural centerpiece of Faena District Miami Beach.
“From the beginning my vision for Faena has been to create a cultural epicenter that draws artists and audiences from throughout the Americas and around the world,” stated Alan Faena, Founder and President of the Faena Group. “The annual Faena Festival will provide a new platform to explore ideas in contemporary culture that fosters engagement with the issues that define us individually and collectively. We are interested in site-specificity and universal impact – in creating a cultural movement without borders, we want to speak to the world. Artists are not limited by geopolitical divides, and ultimately, by celebrating these diverse artists and visions we find ways in which we are all connected.”
“This Is Not America addresses America as concept more than a piece, a contested and powerful idea that is greater than the waters and borders that frame it,” noted Zoe Lukov, curator of Faena Art. “Artists in the Festival have been invited to explore the concept of America as a myth and a narrative that has at times bound and divided us but ultimately has the power to unify. By occupying the interstitial zone between land and sea many of these site-specific installations seek to reimagine porous and transitional spaces as places of refuge and safe harbor that are representative of what our ‘America’ is and can become.”
III Points will return for its sixth and largest installment on February 15-17, 2019 in Miami.SZA,Herbie Hancock,Tyler, The Creator,James Blake,Beach House,A$AP Rocky,Erykah BaduandBlood Orangewill headline, with further highlights includingVirtual Self,Yaeji,Four Tet,Peggy Gou,Ben UFOb2bJoy Orbison,SOBxRBE,DeanBlunt,DJ Stingrayand many more.

ABOUT III POINTS
III Points is an alternative music and art festival in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood. The festival, which was founded by four friends in 2013, arose as a means to represent and unite a unique and diverse community. III Points is a platform that showcases Miami’s up and coming music acts, along with local artists from many disciplines, by placing them alongside the greatest musical and artistic minds in the world.
The festival is in 3 weeks and today we are adding more than 200 bands. We are getting ready to bring the party to THE MILE END and all adjacent neighborhoods. We are adding Ty Segall solo acoustic for an intimate concert and rapper Havoc, the co-founder of legendary hip hop group Mobb Deep. We are really excited to be bringing the Seattle-based KEXP Radio to Canada for the very first time! They will be filming 12 live sessions from Breakglass Studios, featuring performances by Samito, The Luyas, Tess Roby, The Barr Brothers, and more! We’re also honoured to be partaking in the 10th anniversary celebration of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples on the opening night of POP.
Speaking of celebrations, we’re highlighting Montreal’s 375th year by putting on a day of FREE events on Saturday, September 16th, as part of Sessions 375. The daytime programming will take place at POP Quarters (3450 St-Urbain) and feature music by local favourites Orkestar Kriminal, Klô Pelgag, Aba &Preach, Bonjay, Lunice and Kid Koala’s Vinyl Vaudeville. After night falls, the action will move up to the Rialto Theatre Complex (5719-5723 Ave. du Parc), where 5 venues will open their doors for a night of more FREE shows. From RZA: Live from the 36th Chamber of Shaolin, to Aldous Harding, Lido Pimienta, Laura Sauvage and Think About Life, the public will be invited to venture through the 4-floor complex, and discover new art and sounds from 7pm to 3am!
POP Quarters will also be hosting all the FREE POP Symposium talks, with festival artists such as Yves Tumor, Moor Mother, Royal Trux, William Basinski, a cooking beats workshop with Lunice, as well as panels by Women in Music Montreal and a discussion on how cultural communities can support Indigenous resurgence. The Record Fair is also moving to POP Quarters this year and will take place on the Saturday and Sunday, featuring live music, DJs and a listening lounge with complimentary Auchentoshan scotch cocktails inspired by selected festival artists.
We’re also putting on a stellar year of film programming through our Film POP segment, with a slew of International, North American, and Canadian premieres, with films programmed from festivals as varied as Cannes, Slamdance, SXSW, and CPH: DOX. The world premiere of A (Mitchell Stafiej | Canada, 2017) will open the fest, featuring an all-star cast of Montreal-based musicians, including Alex Zhang Hungtai (Love Theme, ex-Dirty Beaches, Last Lizard), Romy Lightman (Tasseomancy), Petra Glynt, Bernardino Femminielli, Caro Diaro, and Alexis O’Hara, followed by a musical performance by the bands featured in the film later that night at the Piccolo Little Burgundy (Late Night). Watch the trailer via The Fader.
It will also be a big year for Art POP with over 15 events and 30 participating artists. Highlights include a video installation and performance by Maya Stovall, one of the selected artists of this year’s Whitney Biennial; an artist talk and performance by a New York artist Baseera Khan; and a Céline Bureau Artist Residency that will take over an entire floor of POP Quarters, featuring artists such as the internationally renowned sculptor Dominique Sirois and painter Peggy Kouroumalos.
