Woodstock 1969 – The Event & the Music

It began as an idea to raise funds to create a music studio. John Roberts & Joel Roseman were friends who were looking for investment opportunities. They advertised in the New York Times. Artie Kornfeld & Mike Lang answered with a proposal for a music festival. They had experience creating such events. A place was located on a farm in Bethel, New York thanks to a local farmer named Max Yasgur. About 50,000 people were expected and over 500,000 showed up. There was 3 days of some of the greatest music that generation produced. There was rain and drugs and rock ‘n’ roll. The crowd was so large that the performers had to be flown by helicopter. Come and hear the stories and relive those times.
