Celebrating Woodstock : the fifty years after party!

The Silverstone Classic isn’t just about fantastic racing, it's ‘Rocking and Racing’ with great live music to enjoy after racing on Friday and Saturday evenings.

This year we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the world's most famous rock festival: Woodstock! 

Visitors got into the spirit of the moment with us and embrace the Woodstock vibe with a ‘fancy dress’ nod to the festival: Hippy outfits and flower power were the order of Friday and Saturday evenings!

Over Friday and Saturday evenings the music of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Joe Cocker, Jimi Hendrix, Santana, Sly and the Family Stone, Ten Years After and The Who were performed.

Woodstock Celebration at the Silverstone Classic Playlist!

We've put together a Spotify playlist to give you a taste of what legendary tunes were performed at the Classic this year. Including:

"Proud Mary"

"My Generation"

"I Want To Take You Higher"

"With A Little Help From My Friends"

"Hey Joe"

 

The Jones Gang 
As the drummer with The Small Faces, Faces and The Who, Kenney Jones has been the heartbeat of three of the biggest bands ever to have come out of the UK. Today Kenney is still performing many of the treasured tracks that The Who ("My Generation", "Pinball Wizard") notoriously blasted out at Woodstock with help from an impressive group of equally talented and experienced musicians known collectively as The Jones Gang.

Hundred Seventy Split  
The band was formed in 2010 by bassist and ‘Woodstock Legend’ Leo Lyons who, along with Alvin Lee, was a founding member of the band Ten Years After (TYA), who famously played the Sunday evening at Woodstock. Joe Gooch (guitar/vocals) also played with TYA from 2002 to 2013 replacing Alvin Lee as guitarist/vocalist. HSS will be playing a set of Ten Years After classics including the legendary I'm Going Home, Spoonful and Good Morning Little Schoolgirl. 

Patrick Alan’s Everyday People 
Hailed as one of the best live performances on record, Sly and the Family Stone took Woodstock by storm with simply staggering renditions of songs such as I Want To Take You Higher, Everyday People and Dance To The Music. LA based Patrick Alan’s highly acclaimed show recreates some of that endearing magic as it pays tribute to one of America’s most influential funk, pop, soul bands. 

Creedence Clearwater Revived  
Creedence Clearwater Revival was the first band to sign up for the Woodstock festival and its set was one of the festival’s true highlights. Johnnie Guitar Williamson has been performing all the much-loved John Fogerty and CCR songs for decades and this year Johnnie’s band is playing the Woodstock setlist including classics Proud Mary, Bad Moon Rising and Born on the Bayou. 

We Remember Joe Cocker 
Paying homage to one of music’s most iconic artists, We Remember Joe Cocker is a six piece band fronted by British Blues Awards nominee Paul Cox. Their show covers Joe Cocker’s heady days of Woodstock (including ‘With a Little Help from my Friends’ and ‘Feelin’ Alright’) as well as notable songs from later in his career. 

Are You Experienced?  
Are You Experienced? are now in their 23rd year together, and in that time have firmly established themselves as the premier Hendrix tribute in Europe, having headlined at venues in Holland, Germany and Sweden as well as festivals in Brazil and Barbados. Founder member John Campbell has also appeared on TV shows in his Hendrix persona and bares more than a passing resemblance to the iconic guitarist. Expect to hear classics such as Purple Haze, Voodoo Child and Hey Joe.

Viva Santana 
Legendary band Santana brought Latin rock fusion to Woodstock and, though yet to release a debut album, the little known ensemble were an overnight sensation with songs including Soul Sacrifice and Evil Ways. Today the phenomenal seven piece Viva Santana is celebrating the music of Carlos Santana at festivals and theatres in the UK, Europe and even Cuba, 50 years on from that momentous set.
