Woodstock Festival

***** Location: North America
***** Season: Summer
***** Category: Observance


Woodstock Music & Art Fair (informally, Woodstock or The Woodstock Festival) was a music festival, billed as "An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music", held at Max Yasgur's 600 acre (2.4 km²; 240 ha, 0.94 mi²) dairy farm in the rural town of Bethel, New York from August 15 to August 18, 1969. Bethel, in Sullivan County, is 43 miles (69 km) southwest of the town of Woodstock, New York, in adjoining Ulster County.

During the sometimes rainy weekend, thirty-two acts performed outdoors in front of 300,000 concert-goers. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most pivotal moments in popular music history and was listed on Rolling Stone's 50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll.

Woodstock was initiated through the efforts of Michael Lang, John Roberts, Joel Rosenman, and Artie Kornfeld.

Things found on the way


Woodstock '99 Haiku
By Jill Krambeck and Julie Wiskirchen

woodstock warriors

left foot right foot left
through the july sun we march
to scream and launch trash

you can't always get what you want

funnel cake i want
air conditioned tent i want
clump of mud on chin i get

Human Hemp

stoned she's rooted there
human shrub on hot runway
sunned and soiled skin

Ode to Young Man on Trail

Korn-bound and shirtless
he commands, "flash your titties"
between slurps of Hamms
