Woodstock is the pioneer of music festivals and continues to be the genre’s ultimate standard as well as the catalyst for the explosion of festivals around the globe. In August 1969, the three-day outdoor rock festival celebrated peace and music encompassing 32 acts performing before nearly half a million young people, earning the distinction of being one of the most important entertainment events of all time. Regarded as One of the 50 Moments that Changed the History of Rock and Roll, according to Rolling Stone, the event had a profound effect on movies, music, fashion, art, social mores and heralded a cultural freedom that continues today.
