Woodstock.com is running an "Ultimate Woodstock 40th Anniversary Sweepstakes"

Wodstock.com is hosting an 'Ultimate Woodstock 40th Anniversary Sweepstakes'The first day of the original Woodstock Festival was August 15, 1969 so next week will mark the 40th Anniversary of the festival. There were reports earlier this year that there was going to be a free festival this summer to celebrate this anniversary but formal announcements never followed.

What did happen though is that Woodstock founders, Michael Lang and Joel Rosenman, launched Woodstock.com as a live music social network. In addition to the music-related content, "[t]here will be platforms for environmental initiatives, social issues, and other current topics. Visitors to the site can meet on a virtual village green, a platform for developing initiatives about global warming, carbon emissions, and responsible energy use. A special interactive portion of the site will make clear to the world which issues are of the greatest importance to the Woodstock community. And of course, the site will be the ultimate source for all things Woodstock -- exclusive interviews, guest editors, audio-visual content, rare photographs and other memorabilia with an online store offering a wide variety of goods including fine art prints of never-before-seen photography, music, film, collectables, apparel and books."

To celebrate this 40th Anniversary, Woodstock.com is running a sweepstakes. One Grand Prize winner will win:
· an Ang Lee Autographed Taking Woodstock Poster
· The Woodstock Experience (Limited Edition Complete CD Box Set)
· Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music (40th Anniversary Ultimate DVD Collector's edition)
· an autographed copy of The Road To Woodstock
· Woodstock - 40 Years On: Back to Yasgur's Farm box set.
