Hayley Jane & The Primates Announced on Yasgur’s Farm Woodstock Reunion

We’re so excited to be playing at Yargur’s Farm this year! We can’t wait to perform alongside our friends in Max Creek, Zach Deputy, Bearly Dead, After Funk, and more! We hope to see at this magical tribute to one of the greatest festivals of all time, Woodstock!

Yasgur’s Farm is the birthplace of the world renowned 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival; which Rolling Stone listed as “One of the 50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll!” Max Yasgur was the Bethel farmer who allowed his property to host the historic festival that ultimately drew 500,000 people together for 3 days of peace, love and music.

Since 1996, the hallowed grounds of Yasgur’s Farm have been a gathering place to relive the spirit of that moment. Every August, around the original anniversary dates, hippies from all nations come together to celebrate the legacy of the most famous festival in history.

Come Experience These Magical & Historic Grounds just 90 Miles North of New York City!

The Everyone Orchestra conductor/founder Matt Butler has taken its participants, both on stage and off, on improvisational journeys with the most diverse of lineups at festivals, theaters and philanthropic events both nationally and internationally. A laundry list of hundreds of musicians, dancers, singers, guest conductors and community organizations have embraced the experience of EO in single shots of musical adrenaline to the soul. Tuning in to his energy, the band and audience utilize The Conductor as their pivot to the set mood of each passing jam as he communicates with the musicians using hand signs, whiteboard and assorted mime suggestions.

From EO Conductor Matt Butler:
The basic idea is that we are co-creating music and utilizing conducted improvisation as a system or agreement, to aim for moments of musical magic. My intent as a conductor is to steer the group towards creating compositional content within our improvisations while keeping the performance dynamic, diverse, inclusive and also getting the audience involved as the extended “choral” section. We are here to have fun, connect with each other, be challenged musically and create a one of a kind performance
