The WEST FEST “40th Anniversary of Woodstock” will take place in San Francisco on October 25, 2009 in Golden Gate Park, Speedway Meadows from 9 am to 6 pm with free admission. Hundreds of San Francisco rock stars, luminaries and activists will pay homage to Woodstock, the largest free musical event in history founded on the principles of peace, love and spirituality.
Born out of the "Summer of Love” which began in San Francisco in 1967, Woodstock helped change the way people lived in the world. The principles began many movements including the Peace Movement, Free Speech, Women's Rights, Workers Rights, the Environmental Movement and now the emerging Green Movement.
This event will draw an estimated 40,000 people on the low end with an upward potential of 100,000. Our last event, “The Summer of Love 40th SF” hosted 132 rock stars and activists and drew in excess of 100,000 people. Once again, we will have extensive media coverage and a worldwide webcast.
The West Fest “40th Anniversary of Woodstock” will pay homage to the 1969 event in Woodstock which drew over 400,000 people. Our event will concentrate on the original ideology and beliefs that surrounded the times and the movement that changed the way people thought and lived worldwide.
It will take place in Golden Gate Park at Speedway Meadows with simultaneous events being held in Germany and New York as well as multiple other potential markets including England, Holland, Australia, and Japan. The event will be webcast live from all of the event locations on the “Woodstock West” (WW) website.

This event will be a combination of 1960’s musical icons, cultural leaders, current pop stars and activists influenced by the era.
