The first Woodstock music festival was held in 1969. It was a legendary music festival that took place in the middle of a revolution during a tumultuous time in history. The memorable music festival brought in over 400,000 people to a muddy field in Bethel, New York. It focused the world’s attention on pop music and its powerful influence that could change a culture and movement.
