Photos of Life at Woodstock Festival 1969

The Woodstock Festival was a music festival, billed as "An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music". It was held at Max Yasgur's 600-acre dairy farm in the Catskills near the hamlet of White Lake in the 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 500,000 concert-goers. 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.

  2. There was fabric made of from picture of 1969 Woodstock Audience = blue print on white & brown print on off-white; I was curious if anyone out there knew if it had any value??? I have about 2 yds of the blue; After I cut up the brown fabric for something like pillows & jacket; my Mother helped me design the blue into long skirt so that we would retain the whole fabric as much as possible but still have wearable art. Dont have the brown items any more but the blue long skirt I still do have & loved to wear during HS in early '70s. It still could be worn as skirt or back seam cut & stretched out like canvas for a wall picture.
