On August 15, 1969, around 500,000 people descended upon Bethel, New York for a festival of peace, love, and music known as Woodstock. An endearing symbol of the 1960s counterculture, the event came together at the last minute through determination and good fortune, giving a collective voice to a younger generation. Rock music legends such as Jimi Hendrix, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, The Who, Janis Joplin, and the Band took the stage on a rainy weekend at Max Yasgur's dairy farm. Originally expecting around 100,000 people, the crowd kept arriving, turning the festival into a free event. Many of the musicians who performed and the people who made the festival happen have passed away. On the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, we remember them and those magical 3 days.
