Albany -- Darton College hosted its own version of the musical festival Woodstock on campus today.

It's the 8th annual Foodstock Festival for charity. Ten bands took the stage.

People who came to the event didn't pay any money to see the show. They just had to bring non-perishable food.

"When we count them all up, and we find out that we have beaten last year's numbers, and know that we had a great turnout and that just lets us know for next year, this is gonna get even bigger," said Juberto Francisco.

Foodstock organizers hope to donate up to 3,000 cans of food to several charities that help feed the hungry.
