Mellem d. 15.-17. August, 1969 blev festivalen ”Woodstock” afholdt. Det var i staten New York og blev afholdt byen kaldet Bethel. Denne festival er for mange mennesker den største musikfestival nogensinde, og ingen har været bedre end denne.

 

Denne festival var ikke kun henvendt til musikken, men også hippiekulturen. Festivalen brugte mottoet ”Three days of peace and music.”, for at understrege dette. Hippierne var ikke glade for begivenhederne i Vietnam og ønskede, at krigen skulle stoppe. Da musikeren Country Joe McDonald optrådte, snakkede han også om Vietnamkrigen og fik samtlige tilstedeværende til at råbe F ordet, som meget godt viste, at folk ikke var tilfredse med krigens forløb.

 

Et stort musiknavn, som Jimi Hendrix optrådte til den meget velkendte festival. Han spillede den amerikanske nationalsang ”Star Spangled Banner”. Han optrådte dog ikke med sangen på en helt traditionel måde. Han fremførte den på en helt speciel måde, som aldrig var hørt før.

 

Det var selvfølgelig ikke alle der tænkte på politik og fred under festivalen. Der blev drukket ekstremt meget alkohol og taget mange stoffer på de tre dage, som festivalen varede.

 

Arrangørerne af Woodstock- Festivalen havde ikke forventet et kæmpe antal gæster, men festivalsgæsterne kom strømmende. Det menes, at der har været mellem 300-500 tusinde gæster denne weekend. Dette gjorde, at festivalspladsen blev proppet med affald og lignede noget, der var løgn. Politiet måtte derfor flyve over pladsen og kaste forsyninger ned til gæsterne for, at festivalen kunne fortsætte som planlagt.

 

Musikgenren var generelt Rock, da det var den helt store genre i 1960’erne.

 

Den største musikfestival i Danmark, Roskilde Festival er inspireret af denne begivenhed og har også inspireret mange andre nuværende festivaler. Derfor kan det godt tænkes, at hvis Woodstock ikke havde fundet sted, så havde der ikke været den samme stemning, holdning og besøgstal til musikfestivaler nu til dags.
