Besides being a venue for the best rock performers of the mid-late 60s, Woodstock was if you look at it a massive "runway" where one could see the best of the bohemian, ethnic, and hippie fashions of the time.
For 3 days people congregated around a stage to listen to their musical idols and lived in a community, those were days of peace & love, and we know the rest...
Among those who performed at Woodstock we have authentic musical legends and talents: Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, Santana, Joan Baez, Grateful Dead, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Joe Cocker, Blood, Sweat & Tears...just to mention a few.

Even though 40 years have gone by already, Woodstock still continues to fascinate and interest those who attended it or are part of the Baby Boomer generation; and those who weren't born yet or were too young for it.
Woodstock was a turning point in history, it closed the 60s in a spectacular way, it marked the end of an era and the start of a new one. For 3 days the world, or at least the crowd at Woodstock had the opportunity to live by the principles and values of the Hippies (Peace & Love); they lived briefly in a utopic world, a world that can become a reality one day if we try to make a positive difference on it and spread the message of peace & love, equality, justice, responsability, and cooperation amongst our family, peers, and fellow citizens.
