Michael Lang, the producer of the original Woodstock Festival in 1969, is back at the helm. Woodstock 50 will take place August 16th - 18th in Watkins Glen International in upstate New York, just a couple hours away from Bethel, New York where the original Woodstock was held.

An impressive lineup of bands have been announced with a nice blend of classic artists and more contemporary performers. Improbably, a fine assortment of musicians will appear that also performed at the original Woodstock 50 years ago!

These classic 1960’s music legends include Santana, Canned Heat, John Sebastian, John Fogerty, Country Joe McDonald, David Crosby, members of Jefferson Airplane (now performing as Hot Tuna) and Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart from the Grateful Dead!

While history has rightfully noted all the Sixties legends that tragically passed away in their twenties, it is truly inspiring to have this many original musical groups that are still performing and thriving today, 50 years later.

This exposure has added a major source of legitimacy to these amazing artworks and has resulted in a huge increase in the number of people that are now collecting these posters.

All of this will be DWARFED by the international exposure that is now, suddenly, just months away. Beginning on January 1st, the world will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock -- the most famous music festival in history. 

In addition to major 50th Anniversary Concerts both in the United States and abroad, there is sure to be major worldwide television, newspaper and magazine coverage of this historical milestone. More importantly, literally millions of people will be exposed to vintage concert posters in major museum exhibits that will occur around the nation. Additionally, PBS and CNN have already announced major multi part 50th Anniversary documentaries next year. 

In short, expect for the whole world to have a case of “Sixties Mania”, that is sure to influence the sights, sounds and fashions of 2019. 

We have tirelessly reported on the lollapalooza effects that have taken the market for Vintage Concert posters by storm, 1)Incredible beauty, 2)Extreme Rarity, 3)Ridiculously Cheap Prices, and very critically, 4) Unsurpassed Historical Importance, and 5) The introduction of independent, third party grading by CGC.

How many collectibles can you name that enjoy an entire year of celebration and publicity? All of this is not theoretical, or destined to happen at some indefinite point in the future. It’s all happening NOW and will continue to accelerate the rate of change we are currently seeing in this fast moving and exciting marketplace!

Exclusive news for readers of this blog! We can definitively state that next year will feature the most important museum exhibition of vintage 1960's concert posters ever offered to the public. This exhibit,  will be in one of the most important, if not THE most important art museum in the world!

You've seen this movie before! They say that history doesn't repeat itself, but it rhymes. 

It was just 2 years ago that we informed our readers that the market for vintage concert posters was going to receive a major shot in the arm from the world's celebration of the 50th Anniversary of The Summer of Love. We explained that collectors should add to their collections while prices were still at rock bottom lows.

Everything we said in Fall of 2016 has come true, 100%!

The media kicked in, the concerts were held, television special were produced, and major art museums had lines out the door with people wanting to experience their own little throwback to "The Sixties". This resulted in a huge shot in the arm for the hobby and it's been onward and upward ever since.

All of us have seen firsthand what happens when our little part of the world lands on the front page of headlines. Values have moved up substantially for posters after the passing of  B.B. King, Chuck Berry, Tom Petty and now Aretha Franklin. 

Why? 

Because this was news that transcended our hobby and entered mainstream America!

The same exact thing is about to happen with the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock!

As a reader of this blog, we implore you to use the information you have NOW, while YOU ARE STILL WAY AHEAD OF THE CURVE. Use the coming weeks and months to start or add to your collection while supply is still available and prices are still affordable. And, if you ever dreamed of owning an authentic Woodstock poster, and you're lucky enough to track one down, grab it NOW, before the masses arrive to compete with you. You’ll be glad you did!
