This year marks the 50th anniversary of the legendary Woodstock festival which took place from August 15 to 18, 1969, on Max Yasgur's 600-acre dairy farm in the New York town of Bethel. The Rolling Stone magazine listed Woodstock as “one of the 50 Moments that changed the history of rock and roll’.

The line-up included 32 acts performing to an audience of over 400,000 young people. Creedence Clearwater Revival was the first act to sign a contract and this persuaded other big acts to follow suit. Performing their second ever concert was Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young who announced ‘This is the second time we’ve ever played in front of people, man. We’re scared s*?@less!’

This 50-year celebration of Woodstock features The Reals, with the talents of Barry Thomson (guitar / vocals), Musical Director Dawn Selby (keyboards / vocals), Mali Sewell (drums / vocals) and Jason Andrew (bass guitar / vocals). The vivacious and super talented Marion Loudon (vocals / percussion) will perform with The Reals for this production. Featured artistes include Santana, Richie Havens, Janis Joplin, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker and many more.

Join the Rhumbelow at Tina’s in Kloof when we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the three days of peace and music of Woodstock. Watch audio visual excerpts from Woodstock and dress up in Woodstock hippie style for a fun experience with The Reals.
