Woodstock Eh! @ Lansdowne Park in Ottawa
Welcome to Woodstock North – Canada’s fête of the 50th Anniversary of the original Woodstock Music Festival. We’re Woodstock North and we’re putting a Canadian stamp on the celebration at Lansdowne Park in Ottawa, Canada.
Woodstock North is not just another music festival. It’s more than music, it’s more than the artists; it celebrates and recreates the Woodstock experience - a three-day music EXPERIENCE! Walk in and go back in time to Woodstock of 50 years ago with a retro look and feel.
Not only will Woodstock North have great music, but it will also have the look, feel, taste and sounds of Woodstock – ambiance, flowers, beads, face-painting, hippies, garb, food, and music. (just ignore the smartphones!)
Watch for Woodstock North’s social media feeds to inspire and guide you on what to wear, how to act and how to talk like a hippie.
The Woodstock North Music Experience will feature both original and the best tribute bands playing the music of the Woodstock era, with a few nods to those bands that wanted to be there but couldn’t make it. No new music or spin-offs or modern rock, pure and simple, the best tribute music of the 1969 Woodstock experience. Woodstock North is staying true!
What’s with the Beaver Rocker?
Woodstock North debated using various symbols of Canadiana including the Maple Leaf, the Canada Goose, an Inukshuk or a loon among other iconic symbols of Canada. We felt that the most adorable, industrious and country-building symbol of our national rodent best embodies the Woodstock North spirit.
Throughout our website and social media feeds, you’ll see the beaver rocker. It’s a 50-year anniversary of Woodstock, a rocker and an iconic symbol of our country all done in the Canadian way. Woodstock North Eh?
Woodstock North is fortunate to enlist the services of Ottawa’s best beaver rocker illustrator and designer - Marc Audet. Check out his other work here.
