Jersey rocker CC Coletti, a seven-year backing vocalist for Meat Loaf, has organized a three-day music festival at Waterloo Concert Fields in Hackettstown in honor of the 50th anniversary of Woodstock. The singer-turned-concert promoter is calling the event Let It All Hang Out Fest after the name of her latest album. The festival will be held Aug. 23 to 25 and features 20 tribute acts, including CSN Songs (Crosby Stills Nash), Kiss the Sky (Jimi Hendrix), Splintered Sunlight (Grateful Dead), and Coletti’s Experience Janis (Janis Joplin).

“I grew up on a street called Woodstock Lane, so I guess I was a rock flower child since day one,” she said. “As the youngest of five in a house full of music, I knew I was destined to live the music life from a very young age and I haven’t looked back since! Music has taken me around the world and I’m proud to be a part of Let It All Hang Out Fest, so close to where it all began for me.”
