Dust off your hippy gear, or if you’re too young to have any, go out and get some – it’s the Woodstock Revival! Live music concerts are a firmly established attraction at the Silverstone Classic Festival and each year organisers try to find a blend of music that is in keeping with the age of the cars and the retro spirit of the whole event. What better opportunity to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original Woodstock mega festival than to bring Woodstock bands to Northamptonshire this summer? In what is believed to be the biggest Woodstock golden birthday party outside of North America, all seven bands performing at the Classic over the two days will boast strong musical links to the glorious festival in upstate New York that totally rewrote rock history. Moreover they will all be performing many of the more notable songs from those legendary sets. To jog memories a special Spotify playlist has been created of some of the classics that will be enjoyed this summer while celebrating Woodstock at the Silverstone Classic: http://bit.ly/TheClassicxWoodstock
Fifty years is a long time, so it is no surprise that very few of Woodstock’s original 32 acts are still strutting their stuff today, but By the Time we got to Woodstock as many of the individual musicians as possible will be there to recreate those famous songs and tribute bands will play the music of Joe Cocker, Creedence Clearwater, Sly and the Family Stone, Jimi Hendrix, Santana….. So get your outfit ready and let’s rock!
Festival of Speed
"Speed Kings – Motorsport’s Record Breakers” will be the theme of the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed, which takes place on 4-7 July. The focus will not just be on the Land Speed Record, but on every area of record breaking in motorsport, from the most consecutive wins, to most championships, fastest laps, most poles set by a manufacturer and many more. The organising team at Goodwood has said that there will be several changes to the event this year including the introduction of some new attractions yet to be announced.
