Woodstock, 45 years ago

The Woodstock Music & Art Fair—informally, the Woodstock Festival or simply Woodstock—was a music festival, billed as “An AquarianExposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music”. It was held in the Catskills near the hamlet of White Lake in the town of Bethel, New York, from August 15 to 18, 1969.

During the sometimes rainy weekend, 32 acts performed outdoors before an audience of 400,000 young people. It is widely regarded as a pivotal moment in popular music history. Rolling Stone listed it as one of the 50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll.

The festival is also widely considered to be the definitive nexus for the larger counterculture generation.

The event was captured in the 1970 documentary movie Woodstock, an accompanying soundtrack album, and Joni Mitchell’s song “Woodstock”, which commemorated the event and became a major hit for Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
