Woodstock 1969.

Festival rok muzike i umetnosti u Vudstoku (Woodstock Music & Art Fair) održan je na farmi Maksa Jasgura u Vajt Lejku kod Betela u državi Njujork od 15. do 18. avgusta 1969.

Preovlađuje mišljenje da je Vudstok najpoznatiji rok festival ikada održan. Posetilo ga je blizu pola miliona ljudi, a sam festival je ušao među 50 momenata koji su promenili rokenrol časopisa Roling stoun. Za mnoge je on najbolji primer kontrakulture 1960-ih i hipi-ere.

Mnogi od najpoznatijih muzičara tog vremena nastupili su tokom tog kišnog vikenda čiji su nastupi zabeleženi na istoimenom filmu iz 1970. u režiji Majkla Vadlija. Pesma Džoni Mičel “Woodstock”, kojom je ovekovečen ovaj događaj, postala je kasnije veliki hit grupe Krozbi, Stils, Neš i Jang.

U početku je festival trebao da zaume mesto u Midltavnu, Orindž Kaunti, Njujork. Gradski čelnici su bili uvereni da neće biti više od 50,000 posetilaca, a stanovnici Midltavna su se odmah protivili događaju. Petnaestog jula festivalu zabranjuju ovo mesto pod izgovorom da nisu zadovoljeni uslovi pokretnih toaleta.

Saznavši za zabranu, Eliot Tiber nudi organizatorima svoj posed u Betelu. Iako je Tiber imao dozvolu grada, ispostavilo se da je posed isuviše mali sa svojih 61,000 m². Preko njega Vudstok Avanture bivaju povezane sa paorom Meks Džezgarom pod dogovorom za 50$ po 5,000 gostiju. Dvadesetog jula se sastaju gde ugovaraju izdaju poseda od 600 akri za 75,000$ i dodatnih 25,000$ za stanovnike u blizini. Vesti oko ovog sastanka su procurele tokom samog dogovora jer su radnici restorana gde je isti bio održan obavestili radio stanice. Organizatori ponovo uveravaju Betela da se očekuje oko 50,000 zvanica.

Organizovan pod nazivom “Vudstok Avanture”, kao investicija rizičnog profita, postaje besplatna atrakcija koja privlači više stotina hiljada ljudi više nego na šta su organizatori bili spremni. Oko 186,000 karata biva prodato dok organizatori očekuju oko 200,000 hiljada posetilaca. Karte su koštale 18$ (oko 75$ uračunato sa sadašnjom infalcijom), a 24$ na dan festivala za sva tri dana.

Smatra se da je Woodstock najpoznatiji rok festival ikada održan. Festival je ušao među 50 momenata koji su promenili rokenrol časopisa Rolling Stone. Za mnoge je on najbolji primer kontrakulture 1960-ih i hipi-ere.

Dva fotografa Bill Eppridge i John Dominis su dokumentovali kako je izgledao Woodstock iz perspektive običnog posetioca festivala.
