Travelling at the speed of lies

When Tim Berners-Lee and others created the architectural foundations of the world wide web, they did so with the vision of openness, idea sharing, and trust. Human nature has a way of making things more complicated, of course.


They are keeping the 60s and 70s alive.

The 60s and 70s did more than just pass by. It was the adolescence of a new world. Flower power, hippies, the antiwar movement, bell-bottoms and the summer of love combined to spawn a new era of peace in humanity’s ‘Age of Aquarius’, if you will.

This legacy of peace, love and world vision was etched in stone by an amazing collection of songs and sounds that captured the essence of mankind’s most creative years in music. Artists were bursting with a mass of creativity that is, so far, unsurpassed.

Late for Woodstock initially formed to bring these classic sounds and images back to live audiences. The four-piece lineup features rhythm and lead guitars, harmonica, bass and drums with four-part harmonies. The players, who all grew up in the 60s and ‘turned on’ in the 70s, are experienced musicians who simply love the music with every fibre of their collective being.

With the motto ‘tune in, turn on and rock out’,  the award-winning LFW brought their music to thousands of people at venues across Queensland and NSW. Now, after a brief hiatus, these hippies of the last millennium, these keepers of the faith, Late for Woodstock have reformed and they will be in Byron Bay this weekend.


Late For Woodstock – Beach Hotel, Byron Bay. Sunday September 8 from 4pm.
