August 18, 1969

On this day in 1969, Jimi Hendrix took to the stage at 9AM to perform at Woodstock.

Hendrix and his band were scheduled as the last act of the festival, they were supposed to perform on Sunday night but due to delays, they wouldn’t play until the following Monday morning. Most of the audience had already left by this time, a maximum of 400 scattered people were lucky enough to catch the infamous ‘Star Spangled Banner.’

Hendrix closed the show with ‘Hey Joe.’
