Taking A Trip Back To Woodstock
It was this weekend in 1969, that three days of “Peace, Love and Music” happened at the Woodstock Music & Arts Fair located on Max Yasgur’s farm in upstate New York. Almost half a million people braved rainstorms and traffic jams to see Jefferson Airplane, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Santana, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Joe Cocker and more.
Woodstock was designed as a profit-making venture – tickets cost $18 in advance and $24 at the gate for all three days. It became a “free concert” when more people showed up than the organizers had prepared for.
