30 Epic Woodstock 69′ Moments — Brings You Back
Woodstock 1969 is celebrating its 49th anniversary this year. It was an event that not only made such an impact in the history of rock n’ roll but also changed the lives of the hundreds of thousands in attendance. Woodstock Music and Art Fair opened in upstate New York on August 15, 1969, and it was advertised in the papers as “Three Days of Peace and Music”, with a long list of popular bands that would be playing. The tickets cost $7 a piece but with the epic proportions of people who came, the fences were put down and the tickets became unnecessary. People from all over the country could just come in, get high, and start dancing to the live music. Organizers thought 50,000 – 100,000 people would be attending but they got 500,000 people who came and in that situation of unexpected overcrowding, anything could’ve gone wrong. However, Woodstock ’69 proved that a sense of serenity, love, peace, and cooperation would unite the hundreds of thousands of people in the festival and even in the rain and mud, no disaster came about. Woodstock ’69 was such an iconic event in the history of counter-culture and rock n’ roll music in America. It captured the people who were there and everybody was able to embody the tagline of the fair which was “Three Days of Peace and Music”. It’s a great memorable moment that’s delightful to look back on. Here are some epic photos that will give you a sense of nostalgia, taking you back to the good ol’ days of the most historic music festival that ever happened.
