Carlos Santana is having a great year. He’s releasing his new joint LP with The Isley Brothers this month (July 28) and has been enjoying quite a buzz. Now, to celebrate the upcoming 50th anniversary of Woodstock festival, Santana reveals that he’d like to team up with his original bandmates to play the iconic festival.

The rocker performed at Woodstock in 1969 alongside Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, and more.

In 2019, Santana has plans to reunite his band for the special event.

“I plan to do something with [his current band, with his wife], hopefully part of the original band, and also with Larry Graham,” Santana says. “So I might be coming to Woodstock with three bands. Fifty years went fast, but now I feel even younger and more clear, and I have more energy and more conviction than back then. That [1969 Woodstock] was basically some of the highest I’ve been in front of so many people. To peak with LSD or peyote in front of 400,000 people, you almost have no control of anything.”

Seeing Santana on stage at Woodstock again would be epic, especially if he’s playing with three bands! Who’s excited?
