IT'S been a few decades since the world first heard hits from Pink Floyd or Jimi Hendrix but time didn't diminish their musical impact for more than 100 Ipswich fans who celebrated 'Back To Woodstock' on the weekend.

The live music event at the Royal Mail Hotel in Goodna on Saturday attracted a big crowd sporting hippie threads that would have been very much at home at the original Woodstock.

Two particularly well-dressed hippies took out the Best Dressed costume competition in male and female category.

Organiser Cath Butler said the band Late For Woodstock played plenty of hits from bands such as the Rolling Stones, The Doors and Creedence Clearwater Revival.

"Everybody was singing along and really getting into the spirit of the day," she said.

Ms Butler said the hotel was looking to hold another Woodstock event later this year thanks to the great response.

The hotel has a big reputation as a place to celebrate music after last year winning the Keeping the Blues Alive award from the Blues Foundation in Memphis, USA.

Ms Butler said that a lot of the performers who took to the stage at the hotel were young bands who put their own modern spin on the blues and roots.
