The Woodstock Generation
In August 1969, almost half million young people came to Bethel, New York, for one of the first great Rock Music Festivals. The preparations for the festival were lasting 6 months. It was attended by 400,000 people, and performers included the Band, Country Joe and the Fish, the Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, and the Who. For the entire weekend people listened to the biggest names in rock, danced, had fun together, and made themselves famous as 'the Woodstock generation'. The festival was a landmark in the youth culture of the 1960s. Many other festivals were later held, but none was as famous as the Woodstock festival. The ticket to the festival which was not used for entering and which cost $18 in 1969, was sold at the auction in 1989 for $8,000.
