The classic rock scene on Long Island is surging, and this phenomenon has fueled a growing popularity among the many tribute bands who breathe new life into this music at venues across Nassau and Suffolk.

Along with all the tie-dyed regalia and familial hugs, the event will showcase live painting and exhibiting by dozens of artists, plus vending, kids’ activities, food & beverage, yoga, massage, and hula hooping.
Says festival producer, Rich Rivkin, “Woodstock Revival is one of my all time favorite days. It’s where I get to dance and hang out at the park with a thousand of my closest friends, and you can see from the expressions on everyone’s face that happiness abounds. There’s clearly a peace & love kind of vibe that is unique to this event, and the music is just amazing.”
Communities of devoted fans have coalesced around these bands during recent years, sparking new friendships and a tangible sense of camaraderie among folks who share a common passion for the music that they grew up with.
When these fans converge to see their favorite bands perform, the energy of the event seems to exceed the sum of its parts. It often becomes more than just a music experience. At its peak, there is a sensation of shared knowingness – something that’s conveyed by a simple glance or smile, among those who find themselves dancing, high fiving, and singing in unison.
This joyous brand of social harmony plays out in spectacular form each summer when Long Island’s annual Woodstock-themed music festival takes the stage at Old Bethpage Village Restoration (1303 Round Swamp Rd, Old Bethpage) June 10th from Noon until 7:30 pm!
