On The Agenda: Woodstock Experience; Argentine ice-cream; comedian Daniel Sloss; David Byrne's Roundhouse exhibition; Yves Saint Laurent; Come Dine with Me

Literature

Graham Nash, of Crosby, Stills and Nash fame, once said, "If all the people who told me they were at Woodstock were actually there, then the whole world would have turned on its axis." Now, 40 years on, you can pretend you were one of the 500,000 present, thanks to the inclusion of an authentic vintage ticket in a hefty new book called Woodstock Experience. The tome includes more than 200 photographs shot by official photographer Henry Diltz (including one of Jimi Hendrix, right) alongside unpublished images by star-struck but quick-witted teen snapper Dan Garson. If you can't afford the £395 price-tag, you could always pop to an exhibition of the works at the Idea Generation gallery in Shoreditch, until 30 August. www. genesis-publications.com Adam Jacques

Food & Drink

Polo players, the tango, a cheeky bottle or two: all great Argentine exports. Now you can add another to the list: ice-cream. The unlikely foodie treat comes to Britain with the opening of upmarket Argentine ice-cream chain Freddo in London's West End (though renamed Freggo here). Its rich chocolate is fabulously creamy and packed with cocoa, while Malbec & Berries feels like a vineyard landed on your tongue. The designer pud comes with a luxury price-tag: two scoops cost £3.50. www.freggo.co.uk AJ

Comedy

There's a lot of humour to be found in adolescence, and who better to deliver painfully funny quips about sex and learning to shave than an 18-year-old who still lives with his parents? After two years as the youngest pro on the stand-up circuit, Daniel Sloss a lanky teen from Fife, is now showcasing his talents at the Edinburgh Fringe's Pleasance Dome from Saturday, with a high-energy dose of coming-of-age laughs. www.danielsloss.co.uk AJ

Art

Former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne is set to literally rock the house with an extraordinary art installation that is to be unveiled next Saturday at London's Roundhouse. The singer-turned-artist has converted the whole of the Grade-II listed Victorian building into a musical instrument for the audience to "play", by attaching mechanical devices to the building's metal beams, pillars and pipes, which will make the whole edifice vibrate and trill. www.roundhouse.org AJ

Fashion

What do we most want hanging off our arm this winter? Robert Pattinson aside, it's the latest heart-breaking leather goods from Yves Saint Laurent. Autumn/winter's Roady, out this week, is set to follow the Downtown and Muse into the bag hall of fame, as designer Stefano Pilati has once again nailed it: a bag that's big enough to fit everything into, yet ergonomic enough not to leave you with one shoulder lower than the other. Kylie Minogue and Mary-Kate Olsen are among the luckies seen toting their pre-release versions. The pick has to be this black leather version with chain detail sides (inset, left), at £1,230. Looks like most of us will have to put up with lumpen luggage and a hunchback for the time being then. www.ysl.com Harriet Walker

Television

On Come Dine with Me, one of TV's most enduring guilty pleasures, four strangers host the sort of dinner parties you'd never want to attend. Throw in some C-list celebrities and the results are unmissable – which is why we can't wait to relive last year's celeb special (with added scenes) with Caprice, Nicky Clarke, Jimmy Osmond and Nancy Sorrell making fools of themselves. Monday, 5.30pm, Channel 4 AJ
