A special 50th anniversary edition of our lavishly illustrated ultimate guide to Woodstock, with a day-by-day, act-by-act account of everything that went down on Yasgur’s farm—along with interviews and quotes from those who were there. Woodstock defined a generation and exemplified an era: the three-day concert that took place on Yasgur’s farm in Bethel, New York, from August 15–17, 1969, was unlike anything that happened before or since.
Now, thanks to this special 50th-anniversary edition, you can relive the moment and go “back to the garden” with this day-by-day, hour-by-hour account of everything that happened on Yasgur’s farm—including a rundown of each of the 33 acts, in the order they appeared.
With interviews and quotes from those who were there and a wealth of photographs and graphic memorabilia, Woodstock is the ultimate celebration of a landmark in modern cultural history and its enduring legacy. This updated edition has a refreshed cover and features four pages of new images and updates on Woodstock today, Where They Are Now, and the Museum at Bethel Woods.
