a festival where "hippies" or counter culture teens and young adults gathered and listened to music that spoke against the problems in their government and they could be themselves. took place in 1969 i believe and many singers and groups many may know of now were there like jimi Hendrix and "the who"
It was a once in a lifetime event. What started out, as a weekend of music, turned into, the most amazing gathering of the 20th century! The expected crowd, was around 20 thousand, and ended up being HALF A MILLION, people. It rained, turning the venue into a sea of mud, but didn't dampen the spirits of the festival goers!!! It was billed as "A FESTIVAL OF PEACE AND LOVE"!! The traffic was so bad, they closed the New York State Thruway!!
