Return to the weekend of August 15-17, 1969, when more than 400,000 people gathered on a New York dairy farm to see their favorite musicians perform, from Joan Baez, Janis Joplin, and Joe Cocker to the Who, the Grateful Dead, and Jimi Hendrix. Music journalist Daniel Bukszpan interviewed dozens of people who were there, including performers, promoters, crew members, and especially members of that audience who together created Woodstock's legendary sense of community. Featuring photos by Amalie Rothschild—many never published before—and a foreword by British singer Melanie, Bukszpan's immersive account also offers insights on how the festival is still influencing pop culture.
