On a mid-August weekend in 1969, more than 400,000 like-minded souls flocked to a dairy farm in upstate New York. It was Woodstock, a singular event that inspired an era of music and culture. Generations after have tried to recreate that spirit, but this perfect symphony of ideas and people will never converge again. These are the people of Woodstock 1969.
