A massive 38-disc Woodstock 50th anniversary box set to be released via Rhino on August 2.

Woodstock - Back to the Garden - The Definitive 50th Anniversary Archive will be a 38-disc, 432-song, 36 hour limited-edition mammoth, which will feature every artist performance from the 1969 festival in chronological order.

The collection also claims to feature 267 previously unreleased audio tracks, totaling nearly 20 hours.

Limited to 1,969 individually numbered copies, the album will come in a screen-printed plywood box with canvas insert inspired by the Woodstock stage set up, designed by graphic designer Masaki Koike.

The set also includes a Blu-ray copy of the Woodstock film, a replica of the original program, a guitar strap, two Woodstock posters, a reprint of a diary written by an attendee during the festival, two 8x10 prints from legendary rock photographer Henry Diltz, and essays by Zax, acclaimed music scribe Jesse Jarnow, and trailblazing rock critic Ellen Sander.

Also included is a copy of Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music (Reel Art Press), a comprehensive new hardbound book about the event written by Michael Lang, one of the festival's co-creators.
