WOODSTOCK “An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music” White Lake, New York August 15 - 18 1969 The greatest concert ever Woodstock!
Why Woodstock is so superb… Woodstock is Woodstock. That is why you should care. It is an extremely insane event that totally was created from the sprit of rock and roll. At the time of the late 60’s rock was what it was about. Because of the war America was protesting peace and love not hate and violence. It’s a fad that everyone should be all for. It is the peak of this ideal and the pride of the “hippies”. Is honestly just something to be marveled at for its awesomeness.
THE 60’S BRO… The 60’s Bro… “In the United States, "The Sixties", as they are known in popular culture in some cases nostalgically to describe the counterculture and social revolution near the end of the decade; and pejoratively to describe the era as one of irresponsible excess and flamboyance. The decade was also labeled the Swinging Sixties because of the libertine attitudes that emerged during this decade. Rampant recreational drug use and casual sex has become inextricably associated with the counterculture of the era” That sums it up to be a decade of freedom and peace Sweeeeeet… (Taken from Wikipedia)
Who are Involved Michael Lang, John Roberts, Joel Rosenman, and Artie Kornfeld So pretty much Roberts and Rosenman had the money and idea and got Lang and Artie into it. They all had differences in how they wanted it to go. Weather to cost money or to make it free. They had differences but made it all happen Sunday, August 17 The Grease Band Joe Cocker Country Joe and the Fish Ten Years After The Band Blood, Sweat & Tears Johnny Winter Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young Paul Butterfield Blues Band Sha-Na-Na Jimi Hendrix Saturday, August 16 Quill Keef Hartley Band Country Joe McDonald John Sebastian Santana Canned Heat Mountain Grateful Dead Creedence Clearwater Revival Janis Joplin Sly & the Family Stone The Who Jefferson Airplane Friday, August 15 Richie Havens Swami Satchidananda Sweetwater The Incredible String Band Bert Sommer Tim Hardin Ravi Shankar Melanie Arlo Guthrie Joan Baez
What’s it all about Ok so Woodstock was like this idea of just like going with the times, peace and love and the coolness of America. Some bros were like “charge money make a fortune” but that didn’t fly cause it was so much bigger then they expected. Hundreds of thousands of people showed up to this love fest. And no way are they gonna charge em all. So they had tons of bands there too so people hung out for three days just surrounded by peace love and rock. Some good music.
Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa So it shows how America Has changed since the wars. When we were in Vietnam, America was all about love and peace. But It got taken to our land like when 9/11 Happened we got upset and wanted to protect our land and were done with the whole hippie thing Frn h

Conclusion So pretty much Woodstock was BA and sweet. Totally about all the things that should be cared about and wanted. Yet America changed from that way of look at things. Woodstock tried to be replicated but none were as infamous as the original. WOODSTOCK
