Lets take a visual trip down memory lane to the 15 – 18 August 1969 where over 500,000 concert goers descended on Max Yasgur’s dairy farm just outside of Bethel New York to be part of 3 days of peace and music known as Woodstock. Of the 32 acts that performed over the 3 days some of the most memorable sets were by Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR), Nash & Young, Jimmy Hendrix, The Who & Santana.
