Back in 1969 there were bands that played Woodstock more by luck than their stature on the international stage. The Keef Hartley Band was one of them.

Alvin Lee’s performance at Woodstock in 1969 catapulted him to superstardom, and the guitarist is now remembered as one of blues rock’s finest ever.

Before appearing at Woodstock, Ten Years After was just another British blues-jazz band. After the festival, the band was elevated to superstar status.
1969 was THE year of the festivals. Across North America and Britain there seemed to be one taking place somewhere almost every weekend during the summer.
