BETHEL, N.Y. (AP) — Arlo Guthrie has sung “The Times They Are-a-Changin'” for reporters as tie-dyed pilgrims converge at the site of the Woodstock concert to mark the festival’s 50th anniversary.
Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is hosting events Thursday through Sunday at the bucolic 1969 concert site 80 miles northwest of New York City.
Guthrie is set to perform Thursday evening before an outdoor screening of the concert documentary on the famous field.
He sang the Bob Dylan classic for reporters gathered on the grass. But he says he also wants to play at least one song near where he performed on the 1969 stage.
An estimated 400,000 people showed up for the original festival on upstate New York farmland Aug. 15-18, 1969.
