Question by poliakovavera: Are there any festivals held in California/LA for 40th anniversary of Woodstock?
I was just wondering if California (preferably LA or the Valley) is holding any kind of celebrations or festivals to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Woodstock?

Best answer:

Answer by Obviousman
Since Woodstock was a phenomenon in New York, there’s really no identification with it here. The only thing I even heard was the oldies station mentioning it.

TodaysArt 2008 – 16n _ ƒ5³
festivals
Image by Haags Uitburo
ƒ5³ by LAB[AU] is an interactive kinetic light sculpture, extending the bi-dimensional screen space, by transposition of its pixel resolution to the physical space. Conceived as a modular infrastructure, 16n _ ƒ5³ is a communication and computation system, propagating in form of light and sound, the events it inhabits. Presence and motion create and alter the transmitted data, and propagation of this data becomes a space-time parameter.

Every year, for one weekend, the TodaysArt Festival brings a whole range of innovative and groundbreaking acts to the Netherlands. For two days, the city centre of The Hague functions as one big festival terrain, with performances both in the public domain and on several indoor stages. Interactive installations, projections and acts use the city centre as a stage and transform The Hague into an inspiring stronghold of audiovisual experiences.

Sarees for all Festivals and Occasions

Sarees for all Festivals and Occasions

India is a land so culturally diverse that there’s always something being celebrated throughout the year! With so many festivals, weddings and other religious and cultural activities, it’s a must to have some good Indian wear as part of your clothes collection. With the many options like salwar kameezes, kurtis, lehengas, etc. the saree still remains a firm favourite. Sarees fly off the shelves during celebratory festivals no matter which part of the country you hail from. Many a time cultural heritage, customs and familial traditions are part of the act of purchasing festival attire.

 

Festival sarees have their own special place in the heart of most Indian women. Certain festivals are heralded in with the purchase of new clothes and a special saree. Many festivals have a tradional type of saree associated with it for e.g. during Diwali women tend to buy sarees with more zari and gold work, bandhani and batik sarees during Navrati and Dandiya season or during traditional light colored sarees with a gold border during Pongal. One of the most popular choices when it comes to purchasing a saree during an auspicious occasion is a silk saree. Pure silk and blends are the go-to choice. And now with lots of big-name designers including gorgeous silk sarees in their collection, it has lost its ‘old-fashioned’ label and is a favourite with many Bollywood divas as well.

 

While silk sarees remain a timeless classic, many women are opting for real and faux georgette, chiffon, satin and net sarees too for all occasions. The wearibility of these light fabrics makes them really popular as does the sheer variety in colors and designs available nowadays.  Festival sarees with beautiful sequin and bead work, embroidery, appliqué work, mirror work and the like, in these fabrics are available in varied budgets in shops, boutiques and online shops as well as designer showrooms. Sarees purchased specifically for festivals like Diwali and New Year’s celebrations reflect the occasions…bright and colorful. Putting on a gorgeous festive saree can instantly put you in a more festive mood! Colors like reds, yellow, green, gold, maroon, bright pinks and vibrant blues are fun and appropriate. Printed sarees in bold colors and designs are also a trendy option for festival and party wear sarees.

 

Make sure the amount of work and design details on your saree is appropriate for the festival or occasion. You can also make a couple of different matching blouses so you can use the <a rel=”nofollow” onclick=”javascript:_gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’, ‘/outgoing/article_exit_link’]);” href=”http://www.g3fashions.in/products.aspx?id=105″>partywear saree</a>  for both a modest religious ceremony and later for a fun party.
