AN EMERGING ARTIST SHOWCASE.
This pop-up stage, located just beyond the main gates, serves as a place for emerging artists from a variety of mediums to display their talents prior to Pavilion concerts. Access to the Horizon Stage performances is included with Pavilion concert admission and typically start 90 minutes before show time, running for one hour.
“Not every performer at Woodstock was a household name in 1969,” said Eric Frances, CEO of Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. “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.”
