The Woodstock Music & Art Fair of August, 1969 was billed as "An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music", it was held at Max Yasgur's 600-acre dairy farm near the hamlet of White Lake in the town of Bethel. During the sometimes rainy weekend, 32 acts performed outdoors before an audience of nearly half a million people, and Woodstock became music's most defining moment of the 20th century. Its counterculture DNA continues to influence musicians today, half a century after it was held, and many of the weekend's performers are still considered some of the best ever heard.
This book captures the history and magical moments of an event like never before, with a full size poster, tickets and the fragrance of marijuana infused within its pages. The book's foreword and images are provided by Rolling Stone magazine photographer Baron Wolman, who covered the event 50 years ago.
Woodstock '69 is the essential celebration of a music festival that changed the world, and it does so as a beautifully presented psychedelic homage to its performers, its audience and a legacy that continues to this day.
