Fifty years ago more than 400,000 music fans descended on a dairy farm in New York state for "3 Days of Peace and Love." The Woodstock festival, held between August 15–18, 1969, attracted some of biggest names of the time, acts like The Who, Janis Joplin, Grateful Dead, and Jimi Hendrix.
Half a century later the legendary three-day event—widely regarded as one of the most pivotal moments in popular music history—is being remembered for its music, its audience, and what it stood for: all that was good about the counterculture movement.
