Jimi Hendrix Woodstock Performance Tidbits

Jimi Hendrix Woodstock Performance Tidbits

Hendrix’s performance with his band Gypsy Sun and Rainbowsat Woodstock Festival, Bethel, New Yorkon August 18, 1969. 

Jimi Hendrix was one of the 32 acts to perform at Woodstock, and boy did he put on one hell of a show donning a white leather and blue-beaded fringed jacket. Hendrix was actually the last to perform at the festival for a crowd of 30,000 onlookers as many of the music-loving concertgoers had already gone home because of the rain delays.

The ones who waited in anticipation for Hendrix’s two-hour performance with his new band Gypsy Sun and Rainbows were certainly thrilled they waited, as it has gone done in history as a defining moment of the ’60s. Hendrix might have been the last act to perform, but he was the highest paid and earned himself a nice sum of $18,000.
