Hosted by

Forty years ago this month, Woodstock was a music concert that became both a cultural "happening" and a political moment that still inspires passion on the Left and the Right.

On August 15-17 in 1969 an estimated 400,000 music fans gathered on Max Yasgur's farm in Bethel, New York for the celebrated music festival. While the original Woodstock concert was held in Bethel, the festival was conceived and originally planned for the town of Woodstock, which was and remains an artistic community.
