Life­hack­er has this great tip. “Start­ing at 5:07 p.m. EST today, August 15, you can lis­ten to every minute of the three days of con­certs, cour­tesy of Philadel­phia radio sta­tion WXPN. It will include all of the festival’s archived audio: from the icon­ic per­for­mances to the stage announce­ments to the rain delays. The exclu­sive broad­cast will fea­ture new­ly recon­struct­ed audio archives of each of Woodstock’s 32 acts, start­ing with Richie Havens’ open­ing set, and con­tin­u­ing through to Jimi Hendrix’s clos­ing per­for­mance on Sun­day morn­ing. Accord­ing to a release from the sta­tion, it will be broad­cast in as close to real time as pos­si­ble.” To lis­ten, go to this page, scroll down, and launch the media play­er.
