Woodstock: Three Days That Defined A Generation

About

In August 1969, half a million young people from all walks of life journeyed from every corner of the country to a dairy farm in upstate New York for a three-day concert unprecedented in scope and influence.

In conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the concert, Woodstock examines the tumultuous decade that led to those three historic days — years that saw the nation deeply divided by Vietnam and racial, generational and sexual politics — through the voices of those who were present for the event that would become the defining moment of the counterculture revolution.

Interviewees include festival producers and staff including Donald Goldmacher, Carol Green, Michael Lang, John Morris, John Roberts and Joel Rosenman; activist Wavy Gravy; festival attendees and others.
