An emerging artist showcase.

This pop-up stage, located just beyond the main gates, allows emerging artists from various mediums to display their talents before Pavilion concerts. Access to the Horizon Stage performances is included with Pavilion concert admission and typically starts 90 minutes before show time and runs for one hour.

Not every performer at Woodstock was a household name in 1969. Having the opportunity to play the festival launched the careers of many musicians. It's in our DNA to support the next generation of artists, and what better way to get eyes and ears on talent than giving them a stage with thousands of people passing by.
