August 12, 1994

Aug12On this day in 1994, Woodstock 2 – officially titled “Woodstock ’94” – begins in Saugerties, New York.

It was advertised as “2 More Days of Peace and Music”. The poster used to promote the first concert was revised to feature two birds perched on a guitar fretboard, instead of the original one.

Joe Cocker, Blind Melon, Cypress Hill, Nine Inch Nails, Metallica, Aerosmith, Bob Dylan, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Porno For Pyros and Green Day performed.

The festival had only minor problems with security unable to properly organize the large audience that attended. It was rainy and muddy, but in the end it was a great success, drawing a crowd of approximately 350,000 people.
