About Woodstock Free Festival
Woodstock Music & Art Fair” was a music festival held in the town of Bethel, new york city from August 15 to August 18 , 1969. It was announced as a meeting whose purpose was to achieve full of feelings and emotions, freedom of expression, and enjoy 3 days of love, peace and music. This event revolutionized hippie age and the culture of the 60s.
To join this festival you would buy a $18 ticket ( about $75 in current times), that were available in record stores in new York city. About 186.000 people acquired the ticket in advance, so the ambassadors were expecting about 200.000. However, to everyone’s surprise, it was not what happened. More than 500.000 people showed up, tore down fences and made the festival free. This sudden influx made new York city stop , blocking the main avenues and streets. During 3 days, the venue of the festival became an open mind place, free of prejudices and laws. Nor the lack of conditions, food and the rain stopped the spirit. What could have been a tragedy, became a nation of counterculture, an explosion of rock where artists as : Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker, Carlos Santana, Joan Baez, Richie Havens, Johnny B.Goode, etc, made this festival legendary.
Now, In 2012, we dont intend to plagiarize, but to make a tribute to this great celebration, where the spirit of sharing, mutual help and friendship can not miss in this times of crisis. Freedom of expression and good disposition will be the free pass for this meeting. We are counting with your support. thank you all.
