The unexpected truth about the 1969 Woodstock festival!

29 Jun 2023

Woodstock is one of the most famous rock festivals, which took place from August 15 to 18, 1969, on one of the farm towns in rural Bethel, New York, USA. According to data, it was visited by about 500 thousand people. What happened there is covered by many legends, which in 1970 were used for the filming of the movie Woodstock. Three days of peace and music. So what actually happened at the revolutionary festival - you will find out in our article.

About Woodstock

At first glance, the culture of Woodstock might appear to be a collection of homeless people gathering in a parking lot. But this is only at first glance. Of course, for the duration of the concert (and it lasts for three days), the visitors refused the usual luxuries. After all, they completely immersed themselves in moments of carefree rest and thus demonstrated to others the relaxed atmosphere that dominated the festival.

The territory of the festival is a separate art form

From this photo you can see that the grounds of Woodstock were decorated with many fascinating tapestries and tents, showing the creative spirit of the event. See a group of young people surrounded by an impressive arrangement of yellow tarps decorated with intricate coral patterns? Tapestries not only added visual splendor to the surroundings, but also served as unique works of art.

500,000 attendees

Set on a sprawling 600-acre dairy farm, Woodstock was originally envisioned as a relatively modest event, far from anyone's expectation that it would draw over 500,000 attendees! It remains an unparalleled music festival experience that has yet to be replicated. For those curious about the sheer magnitude of half a million people gathered together, this incredible photo provides a glimpse. Surprisingly, only 100,000 Woodstock tickets were sold in advance, meaning an astounding 400,000 individuals arrived without a ticket in hand. It's truly mind-boggling to imagine the convergence of such a massive crowd in a humble dairy farm setting.

The Crowds

The crowd created significant challenges and tensions leading up to and during the Woodstock festival. Prior to the event, finding a suitable venue that could accommodate the expected number of attendees and satisfy the concerns of local residents proved to be a major struggle. Initially planned for Woodstock, New York, the festival had to be relocated due to opposition from the local community. Eventually, a venue was secured in Wallkill, New York, but the issue of crowd size remained a concern. The festival organizers had intended to host no more than 50,000 people, yet a staggering 400,000 individuals ended up attending, surpassing all expectations.

Freedom is the core message being conveyed

In 1969, John Sinclair eloquently captured the essence of Woodstock, describing it as a cultural revolution that encompassed every aspect of society. As a poet, writer, and political activist, Sinclair recognized the power of art, music, and various forms of expression in conveying the message of freedom. He believed that Woodstock, with its unique blend of culture, music, fashion, and lifestyle, embodied this message of liberation and served as a transformative experience for those who participated. Woodstock became a symbol of freedom, transcending boundaries and inspiring a generation to embrace their individuality and pursue a more liberated way of life.

Sharing is Caring

The spirit of sharing and communal support was a cornerstone of the Woodstock Music and Art Fair. However, the unexpectedly massive turnout led to a significant food shortage at the festival. With numerous attendees reluctant to leave their spots on the field, finding food became a challenge. Despite this, the Woodstock community rallied together to ensure that everyone was fed. In the photo below, you can witness the ingenuity and unity of festival-goers as they constructed makeshift huts and gathered to share food, fostering a sense of togetherness in the face of scarcity.

Farm Fresh

If you weren't already aware, the iconic Woodstock festival took place on Max Yasgur's dairy farm in the town of Bethel, New York. With plenty of farm animals around, festivalgoers found unique ways to make use of the surroundings. In this particular instance, these creative attendees seemed to be craving a dairy refreshment, as they took it upon themselves to milk a cow for a thirst-quenching drink. A gathering of onlookers eagerly watched as this individual showcased his skills and obtained fresh milk straight from the farm. It was quite a spectacle indeed!

This act of communal care and support was a fundamental principle that epitomized the spirit of Woodstock.

The weather is so different

Throughout the duration of the four-day festival, the weather at Woodstock fluctuated between sunny and rainy conditions. Surprisingly, the rain didn't dampen the spirits of the festival-goers, particularly the free-spirited hippies in attendance. Rather than being bothered by the muddy terrain, many of them embraced it wholeheartedly. They kicked off their shoes and allowed their toes to sink into the soft earth. The photo below captures the joyful essence of four individuals, happily reclining together in the rain, relishing their dampness and freedom from footwear. While some chose to wear raincoats for protection, countless others embraced the rain with open arms, dancing and celebrating without any barriers.

You will not see this anywhere else

In this amusing sight, it may appear as though this couple is engaged in a muddy game of tug-of-war. However, their true intention is to remove the water from their blanket. Recognizing the power of teamwork, they opt for a joint effort, tightly twisting the blanket between them in hopes of expediting the drying process. Notably, the gentleman on the left expertly multitasks, enjoying a cigarette while partaking in the endeavor. Clearly, their actions reflect the importance of setting priorities amidst the unique circumstances of Woodstock.

The cemetery is a new bedroom

Although the enthusiasm to attend Woodstock was undeniable, the idea of spending the night in a cemetery alongside the departed raises some eyebrows. It's hard to comprehend the reasoning behind such a choice. Nevertheless, observing the photo, it appears that these individuals have established a decent camping setup with their tents and other necessary gear. One can only hope that they were taking turns with others, sharing the space respectfully. On the flip side, there is a certain otherworldly quality to the notion of sleeping in a graveyard that might have added to the overall surreal atmosphere of the concert. One can only wonder what experiences and sights they encountered during those memorable nights on the farm.

And what about hygiene?

This unconventional way of showering involved simply running a hose down a pipe sticking out of the ground.

Interestingly, this may explain why many people in photos look a little disheveled and rough. They seemed to be having so much fun that a little dirt didn't bother them too much.

And what about hygiene.jpg@Woodstock 1969 (18+)/zarraza filmai 1/


Although the idea of relying on each other for everything at Woodstock was commendable, the festival organizers had to seek external assistance for medical supplies. In this photo, a medical crew can be seen transporting supplies from a helicopter to the ground. With a staggering attendance of 500,000 guests, it's no surprise that there were numerous medical emergencies that required more than improvised solutions like using a t-shirt as a bandage or vodka as an antibacterial. Thankfully, the availability of modern medicine played a crucial role in providing proper care during the event.

Unlimited Tye-Dye Supply!

After gaining popularity at Woodstock, tie-dye transcended mere fashion and became a symbol of a countercultural lifestyle. It embodied the ideals of free love, the use of recreational substances, and a disdain for mainstream values, much to the chagrin of parents everywhere. Like Birkenstocks, tie-dye became an essential wardrobe item during Woodstock, and for those who forgot to bring their own, there were stands offering a variety of vibrant, rainbow-swirled merchandise. An authentic tie-dyed tee from Woodstock remains a coveted item, capable of evoking the spirit of that transformative era.

On a positive note, their unwavering commitment to each other is evident as they clasp hands tightly, refusing to let go even in the midst of the exodus. One can only hope that their friends patiently waited for them, as waking up to an empty Woodstock would have been quite a surprise.

One individual succumbed to a heroin overdose, while another tragically passed away after being accidentally run over by a tractor while asleep. However, amidst the sorrow, there were also moments of joy and new beginnings, as two births were recorded during the course of Woodstock.

Hippies On The Roof

This vibrant, psychedelic van evokes a strong sense of Woodstock FOMO (fear of missing out)! The individuals perched on the roof appear to be seeking a better view of the stage or simply seeking a cozy spot to relax. Although the safety of this seating arrangement may raise some eyebrows, particularly with two of the women standing, we trust that they had everything well in hand.

Regardless, it's undeniable that these participants had secured the absolute best seats on the entire farm!

This father undoubtedly deserves the title of the coolest dad ever! What could be better than enjoying the Woodstock experience with your parents? This particular dad not only brought his family along for the unforgettable journey but also arrived in style on a psychedelic school bus. The vibrant and lively bus perfectly complemented the tie-dye shirts worn by the boys. During a momentary pause in the festivities, the family quenched their thirst with some soda, as evidenced by the vintage 7-Up can.

Just Released

Festival-goers used payphones to contact their loved ones and share their emotions from the event. Meanwhile, journalists tirelessly documented the events at the festival, capturing the essence of Woodstock in their stories that graced the front pages of newspapers. Given the continuous flow of lively events, it seems that some stories did not quite reach their readers, as evidenced by the scattered papers scattered on the ground.

Traffic Terrors

Despite the countercultural spirit and sense of camaraderie that permeated Woodstock, it's important to acknowledge that the festival was not without its risks and challenges. In this photograph, a young man is depicted, as having suffered an injury after falling off a truck. The immense traffic congestion surrounding the festival made it difficult for an ambulance to reach the scene promptly. However, in true Woodstock fashion, the man received assistance from compassionate individuals who stepped up to help. Their acts of kindness exemplify the community spirit that emerged during the event, emphasizing the shared responsibility and support that existed among festival-goers.

The best rest

Having a relaxed and flexible mindset about sleeping arrangements was indeed essential for a fulfilling Woodstock experience. With an enormous crowd of attendees, securing a comfortable place to rest was a matter of making do with what was available. In this particular instance, captured in the photo, a Woodstock participant embraced a truly laid-back approach to sleeping by catching some much-needed zzz's on the body of his motorcycle. Sporting a true biker style, he found a spot that suited him, ensuring a brief respite amidst the festival chaos. Let's hope it was his own motorcycle, as waking up to an unfamiliar ride would have been quite a rude awakening.

They say a picture speaks volumes, and this one surely leaves us curious about the conversation that took place. Amidst the lively atmosphere of Woodstock, we can imagine this interaction being lighthearted and playful. Perhaps this guy was jokingly inquiring about nearby hotels, knowing well that accommodations were not the priority at the festival. With his stylish motorcycle and cool leather vest, he appeared ready to embark on an adventurous journey, hoping to share the experience with the lovely lady beside him. Maybe she would even join him on the back of his bike, creating a memorable ride into the sunset.

Naturally, questions arise regarding how this daring individual ascended to such a lofty position. Equally intriguing is the mystery of how they managed to maintain their balance and composure while engrossed in reading a book. One might speculate that this person was a trapeze artist, taking a brief respite from their acrobatic endeavors to partake in the Woodstock Music & Art Fair. Given the free-spirited and adventurous nature of Woodstock, it's not entirely surprising to witness such unconventional behavior in this adult playground of creativity and self-expression.

Follow The Groovy Way

In life, we often encounter numerous paths to choose from, each leading to different destinations and experiences. In this captivating photograph, we are presented with two diverging roads, each marked by an arrow. The presence of these arrows suggests that both routes hold their own allure and potential. The "groovy" path is likely reminiscent of a vibrant journey filled with individuals adorned in afros and bell-bottom jeans, immersing themselves in the enchantment of disco music. On the other hand, the "gentle path highway" evokes imagery of a serene and nature-filled trail, where monks and fairies might be found gracefully traversing the green grass. The individuals in the photo appear contemplative, perhaps pondering which road to embark upon. Regardless of their choice, we can trust that they will embrace the journey that resonates with them most, guiding them towards a fulfilling destination.

Hey Hey Hey!

It's undeniable that sometimes all a person needs in life is a trusty guitar and the gentle breeze at their back, and this participant at Woodstock had the privilege of experiencing both. In this captivating photo, the man appears lost in contemplation as he strums his guitar, while comfortably perched on his rustic throne of hay. His serene expression hints at the depth of his musical journey, leaving us curious about the melodies he was harmonizing with. Was he immersed in the poetic tunes of Bob Dylan or the electrifying riffs of Jimi Hendrix? Perhaps he was in the midst of composing his very own legendary ballad, capturing the essence of the transformative Woodstock experience. Regardless of the specific song, it's evident that this groovy individual found solace and creative expression through the strings of his guitar, embracing the spirit of musical exploration and self-expression that defined the Woodstock era.

Tricky predicament

Reflecting on the transformative music festival that forever altered the landscape and ethos of the industry, Woodstock stands as a testament to the power of unity and the beauty of nature. Set amidst a bucolic farm, the festival embraced the presence of wildlife, adding an extra dimension to the experience. In the captivating image below, a group of young festival-goers can be seen reveling in the moment, seeking respite from the sweltering August sun by finding solace in each other's arms, aided by the cooling shade of the surrounding trees. Contemplating the scene, one can't help but ponder how today's generation would navigate similar circumstances without the convenience of modern amenities like air conditioning. It sparks curiosity about the adaptability and resourcefulness of youth in different eras, and whether the absence of certain comforts would foster a deeper connection to nature and to one another. Woodstock serves as a reminder of the timeless joy that can be found in simple moments and the importance of embracing and appreciating the natural world around us.

Music Vibes

The mesmerizing and one-of-a-kind performance by Jimi Hendrix left the Woodstock crowd in awe. What's intriguing is that Hendrix had to put together a makeshift band specifically for the festival. With his previous band having disbanded just before the event, he assembled a new group called Gypsy Suns and Rainbows. The members of this newly formed band had never experienced performing for such a massive audience before Woodstock. Although they only had a few more performances together after the festival, their presence at Woodstock remains a memorable chapter in music history.

Richie Haven

The massive turnout at Woodstock was fueled in part by the stellar lineup of musical artists. Kicking off the festival on Friday, August 15, 1969, was the renowned Richie Havens, who captivated the audience for an impressive two-hour set from 5:07 pm to 7:00 pm. Not only did Havens deliver an unforgettable performance, but he also received a substantial payment of six thousand dollars for his singular appearance. The folk singer's electric presence on the Woodstock stage further solidified his fame, leaving an indelible mark on his career. When Havens passed away in 2013, his ashes were reverently scattered across the sacred grounds of the Woodstock site, forever connecting him to the historic event.

Santana and his band brought a captivating Latin rock fusion sound to the Woodstock music festival, captivating the audience with their performance. Adding to the allure, Santana's drummer, Michael Shrieve, was a mere 20 years old at the time, making him the youngest musician to grace the festival's stage. However, considering the abundance of substances available at Woodstock, it might not have been the most suitable environment for young musicians. 


Sly And The Family Stone

On the second day of the Woodstock festival, the stage was graced by the presence of the legendary mixed-race and gender band, who unleashed an unforgettable performance. They sang their anthem "Stand!" in the early morning of Saturday, August 16, 1969. Widely regarded as one of the festival's standout shows, it comes as no surprise that they were handsomely compensated for their talents. In fact, they were paid a substantial sum of $7,000 for their electrifying performance.

Sly And The Family Stone.jpg@Woodstock 1969 (18+)/zarraza filmai 1/

Tim Hardin

Tim Hardin performed on the first day of the festival, captivating the audience with his performance of the song If I Were a Carpenter. This incredible performance earned the artist an impressive $2,000, a significant amount in the context of 1969. Unfortunately, Hardin's promising career was cut short as he tragically died in 1980 when he was found on the floor of his Hollywood apartment.

Janis Joplin

Janis Joplin is one of the most famous and talented women of all time. We remember her because of her unique style. HER fearless following of her own path was also evident during her unforgettable performance at Woodstock, when she appeared on the second day of the festival. Then she performed the hit Piece of My Heart. The appearance of this icon on the Woodstock stage at the time brought her a substantial reward of $7,500.

Melanie Safka

This is a story about how sometimes it is important to take chances in life. When The Incredible String Band refused to perform in the rain at Woodstock, Melanie Safka jumped at the chance to take the stage. At the time, there were rumors that her voice even shook during her first hit Lay Down (Candles in the Rain) due to nerves and fear of the crowd. Be that as it may, but she looked stunning. What's more, she was one of the three women who graced the festival line-up.

Melanie Safka.jpg@Photos From Woodstock That Couldn't Be Seen Before/Viral Nater/ 

Joe Cocker

On the final day of the Woodstock music festival, which took place on Sunday, August 17, this incredible blues singer took the stage and delivered an electrifying performance. Among the 32 acts that graced the festival over its four-day duration, he left an indelible mark on the crowd. Following Cocker's set, a thunderstorm swept through the area, causing a temporary interruption in the festival proceedings for several hours. Although Cocker's compensation of $1,375 may not have been the highest among the performers, it was still a significant achievement. On a separate note, we can't help but admire his vintage tie-dye t-shirt, which perfectly captures the spirit of the era.

The music at the festival ignited a wave of inspiration among the attendees, leading them to create their own music. People at Woodstock displayed a remarkable resourcefulness by crafting instruments from a wide range of unconventional objects. Some brought drums, while others repurposed barrels to create rhythmic beats. Flutes brought from home added melodic elements to the musical ensemble. What made this experience special was the communal aspect of music-making, as strangers joined together harmoniously. It didn't matter whether individuals were acquainted or not; anyone was welcome to contribute and participate in the collective musical expression.

Transformative Influence

The Woodstock festival brought together a diverse array of individuals, creating a remarkable gathering that has since earned its status as one of the greatest rock festivals in history. Its influence extended beyond the music, leaving a profound impact on the baby boomer generation and the broader cultural landscape. Woodstock aimed to foster a culture of peace and harmony, seeking to unite people from all walks of life. For many who were fortunate enough to attend this iconic event, Woodstock succeeded in achieving that very goal. Strangers forged connections, transcending boundaries and living as a unified community for the duration of the four-day festival.

Make The Best Out Of It

Despite the unexpected turnout of 500,000 people, Bill Hanley, the sound engineer responsible for the concert's audio, expressed satisfaction with how the event unfolded. He explained that he had strategically placed speaker columns on the hills, utilizing 16 loudspeaker arrays on a square platform mounted on 70-foot towers. Originally designed for an estimated audience of 150,000 to 200,000, the setup aimed to provide optimal sound quality. However, due to the overwhelming crowd and logistical challenges, some cars were left behind, and not everyone had the opportunity to fully experience their favorite artists' performances on stage. This led to a poignant scene where a boy is observed playing the missed songs to his friends, making the best of the situation.

Romantic vibes 

Timothy Francis Leary, a renowned psychologist and author, once pondered the concept of the hippie, describing it as an institutionalized label for a deep and transformative underground movement. According to him, hippies can be decorated with flowers and beads, but there are others, less visible at first glance. Leary went on to explain the phenomenon of spreading love, which played a significant role in the spirit of Woodstock. He emphasized that these people, tuned to their inner vision, consciously refuse the superficial and comical image of American life that is presented through television.
