What’s the story?
Woodstock the Story tells the story of a generation; the story of artists and festival-visitors who obviously had no idea at the time that they were writing history. Hear and feel ideals, ideologies, wishes, dreams; the contradictions in society and the resulting protest songs.
By the time we got to Woodstock…
Nearly half a million people made the pilgrimage in August 1969 ‘back to the garden‘; the fields of farmer Max Yasgur in Bethel, New York. This sudden invasion made the small village that weekend the second largest city in the state. The lineup of the festival included 32 bands and solo artists, some of which were still at the beginning of a famous career.
Together they made the Woodstock Music & Art Fair a myth: the most famous rock festival of all time, which is still regarded today as the mother of all festivals. The festival where everyone wanted to be with; music, facts and fables have inspired millions of people around the world.
… we were half a million strong…
At Woodstock, the hippie life of harmony, love, peace and community became once again reality for three days. Organization-wise, it was kind of a nightmare, mainly because that unbelievable and unexpected amount of people showed up, more than twice as much as expected. Fences gave way, revenues lagged, traffic congestion couldn’t be extremer: artists and food had to be flown in. There was an almost catastrophic lack of food and water (no lack of drugs, though 🙂) and there were dangerous thunderstorms and rain. However… despite the huge influx and organizational setbacks, the festival was peaceful, almost without incident: Three days of Peace & Music.
Woodstock the Story brings the unique atmosphere and the great music of this exceptional festival to the present, with a powerful performance.
Passionate live band, great music and sincere flower power feeling, three hours with the best songs of the best bands of the legendary festival. Experience flower power … Peace, Love & Music!
