Although there are plenty of music festivals around, there’s no doubting the special cultural influence of Woodstock.
The event — which was held from Aug. 15-18, 1969 — brought together some of the most famous musicians of the ’60s in Bethel, N.Y. Attendees heard sets from influential artists such as Joan Baez, Jimi Hendrix, Santana and The Who.
Joe Cocker — known for hits such as “You Are So Beautiful” and “Up Where We Belong” — performed for the thousands of festival goers in a tie-dye short-sleeved T-shirt and striped jeans.
Hendrix stepped out onstage in a bold fringed, suede-like long-sleeved top with jeans underneath. The “Purple Haze” singer had his hair pulled back with a hippie-like headband.
Festivalgoers ate rationed food and hung out on top of their cars — the lines of cars went on and on at the festival, with many of the vehicles becoming mud-splattered. Their looks were similarly ’60s chic, with tie-dye, flared denim and floppy hair.
Over the course of the rainy weekend, 32 acts performed outdoors. The iconic musical moment was captured in a 1970 Oscar-winning documentary, “Woodstock.”
A 50th anniversary festival is planned for Aug. 16-18 of this year, with big acts such as The Killers, Miley Cyrus, Chance the Rapper, Jay-Z and Halsey making up the lineup.
