The rejected invites of Woodstock

That which we wanted to hear in that famous festival, destiny didnÕt allow for. Could you imagine? Some of the world's greatest artists didn't attend the most iconic music event of 1969 Ð Woodstock! From Janis Joplin to Jimi Hendrix, there were truly no shortage of rock and roll megastars at Max Yasgur's farm that summer. But talk about near misses! Even though legends like Mick Jagger and The Doors vocalist Jim Morrison couldn't make it, some of musicÕs biggest contemporary stars also decided not to attend the epic three days of concerts and performances. Stars like Prince, Led Zeppelin, Elton John and Michael Jackson missed a night in history. Surely they regret not attending now Ñ who wouldnÕt want an invitation to such an unprecedented momentous celebration?

Bands Who Did Not Play Woodstock

The Doors we just a few of the famous bands of the 1960's that choose not to attend Woodstock, Jim Morrison felt this outdoor event would not work for his band, choosing not to attend the most famous festival of all time.

Led Zeppelin was in his prime touring the East Coast of America, playing at his own music concert at the famous Asbury Park Convention Hall, in New Jersey on the weekend of the Woodstock Festival. Deciding to enjoy his own tour and music fans. Led Zeppelin turned down the opportunity to appear on stage for one hour, he was only South from the Woodstock venue.

Woodstock attracted an audience of over 400,000 people in 1969, spread over three days, with 30 tribute acts performing on stage. Set on a dairy farm in New York State, the small town of Bethel, in Sullivan Country, later recalled this as one of the most pivotal moments in music history.
The Rolling Stones headlined and changed Rock and Roll for the new counterculture generation to come. Bill Henley was famously recognised for the infrastructure of the Woodstock Bins, having built large columns over the hills with 16 large speakers, backed by 3 transformers with over 2000 amperes of power to support the acts.

Many bands that passed over the chance of attending Woodstock believed that a concert on a diary farm was not an association they wanted to be remembered by. The Moody blues had been featured on the promotional posters as attending the show, only to pull out to tour in Paris, this was a regret that the band had after the amazing success of the festival and music artists.
