A must-have for music fans or Woodstock fans. Woodstock took place August 15-18, 1969 with 400,000 estimated attendees but less than half were anticipated. Tickets were just $18 for all 3 days but Woodstock became a free event when so many people showed up.
The Woodstock Music and Art Festival was held at Max Yasgur's 601-acre dairy farm in the town of Bethel, New York. It was originally supposed to be held in Wallkill, NY. People in the Town of Wallkill, meaning those on the Town Board, quickly passed a law that required a permit to hold any gathering for over 5,001 people. A permit was applied for, but it was denied because the portable toilets proposed were considered to be inadequate. A Sullivan County farmer named Max Yasgur heard about the festival and the problems and offered his farm in the Town of Bethel. He was paid $10,001 for the three days.
In 2004 Rolling Stone magazine listed Woodstock as number 19 of the 50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll. It is also now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The festival has become widely regarded as a pivotal moment in popular music history as well as a defining event for the counterculture.
