“People have an intense emotional attachment to the festival, whether they were there or not. The original stage is the only artifact that exists for people to touch and reflect upon,” said Steve Gold, owner of the stage. “Its importance is beyond measure — it’s like the Holy Grail of rock music.”

Gold attended the concert when he was a teenager.

The “Woodstock at 50” exhibit is currently on display at the Rock Hall for several more weeks.
