On August 15th-17th, 1969, the world saw one of the most popular and infamous festivals in history, “The Woodstock”.
The event was held to the north of New York City, and was one of the greatest symbols of the hippie generation. Initially, the producers and organizers were expecting around 80,000 people, but with the confirmed presence of legendary artists like The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Stills & Nash, Jefferson Airplane and Janis Joplin, among others, the crowd reached the incredible number of 400,000 crazy young fellas, who camped there for the entire three days, eating, drinking, sleeping, making love outdoors and of course, singing and smoking tons of pot. If you’re too young, and don’t know what we are talking about, you can ask your parents what they know about the festival and check out this amazing collection of some unseen and rare pictures of the legendary Woodstock Festival. Peace and Love!
