CLEVELAND — The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is celebrating Woodstock’s 50th Anniversary with a new exhibit dedicated to the love, peace and music that is synonymous with the festival.

Starting Wednesday, visitors can relive the iconic festival with the “Woodstock 50” exhibit that will stay open through Fall 2019.

The exhibit features rare prints, outfits, footage and tickets from the festival.

Jimi Hendrix's guitar strap used at Woodstock 1969 to deliver “The Star-Spangled Banner” to a crowd of 18,000 people, along with his handwritten lyrics of “Voodoo Chile,” one of the last song’s he would perform live, will be on display.

The exhibit also features hand-drawn maps of festival grounds with aerial views showcasing prominent locations.

The Rock Hall will release rare video footage that shows candid moments offering new perspectives of festival-goers.

On Wednesday night, there will be a special Rock Hall Nights: Woodstock program from 6-9 p.m. EST. Fans can meet Rock Hall inductees and get merchandise signed at the event. Tickets are $20 and they include a tour of the exhibit, a VIP check-in, and a complimentary drink voucher.
