The spirit of Woodstock
It’s been 50 years since Woodstock – four days of “Peace, Love and Understanding” attended by half a million people, took place on a 600 acre farm in Upstate New York. That message is probably even more important today as we see governments the world over using the politics of hate and divisiveness to get themselves re-elected. You mention Woodstock and for some it was the extraordinary bringing together of many of the best musicians ever, in one place at one time that was memorable, for others it was the failed business venture, and the counter culture with its dalliance with drugs and free love. Let’s focus on its positive aspects. That is the message to return to today.
It was all about loving your fellow man and uniting in a shared dream of a greater good. A sense of "togetherness" which is perhaps hard to find if a festival is characterised by corporate sponsorships, pricey tickets, merchandising and expensive beer. Woodstock was the amazing confluence of some of the world’s greatest acts. Sure the weather was bad and the music continued right through the night. There was little sleep being had anywhere, but it didn’t matter. It was people sharing a love for great live music and that was all that mattered.
Has the internet turned listening to music into a solitary pursuit for us? We no longer go to record stores and share our musical passions and discoveries with other music fans, so the thrill of the physical search for good music has been replaced for us by… the shimmering screen? We aren’t attending live music events the way we used to. Who could be blamed for choosing the soft option, of listening comfortably at home after work? Yes, we've changed the way we consume music and we have got used to access to whatever we want, immediately. We are defining ourselves by our existing likes and dislikes in music rather than the thrill of not knowing, and sharing a new discovery on a patch of ground we might share with countless others at a music festival. Live music has a thrill all its own.
The Eudlo Music Nights is celebrating the music of the Woodstock generation with a Return to Woodstock concert.

At this stage all acts are confirmed.
Interested performers can contact us with the usual support information, but there are unlikely to be booked spots. Which of course is why we have the Open Mic as a feature of the event. Spots can be booked for the Open Mic (see the program below or Bookings for available times) and performers will be allowed 2 songs (or perhaps 3) per act.
