The summer of 2019 sees the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, one of the most iconic festivals in music history. To celebrate Rhino Records will release a mammoth 38 CD boxset containing 433 tracks, chronicling the entire festival.

 Running at 36 hours in length, the boxset includes 267 tracks and 20 hours of unreleased music featuring every set performed across the weekend.

Limited to just 1,969 individually numbered copies, Woodstock 50 - Back to the Garden: The Definitive Anniversary Archive comes in a screen-printed plywood box with canvas insert inspired by the Woodstock stage set up, designed by Grammy®-winning graphic designer Masaki Koike. Also included is a Blu-ray copy of the Woodstock film, a replica of the original program, a guitar strap, two Woodstock posters, a reprint of a diary written by an anonymous attendee during the festival, two 8x10 prints from rock photographer Henry Diltz, and essays by Zax, acclaimed music scribe Jesse Jarnow, and trailblazing rock critic Ellen Sander and a copy of Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music, a new hardbound book written by Michael Lang, one of the festival’s co-creators.

The collection will be available on August 2 for $799.98. Pre-orders are available now at www.rhino.com/woodstock50

If that's a little out of your price range, Rhino will also release 10 CD, 3 CD and 5 vinyl LP versions on June 28th.
