Three Days That Rocked the WorldBook - 2009
It defined a generation, exemplified an era: Woodstock was unlike anything that has ever happened before or since--and August 2009 marks the 40th anniversary of this seminal event. Relive the moment and "get back to the garden" with this day-by-day, act-by-act account of everything that went down on Yasgur's Farm. With interviews and quotes from those who were there--the musicians, the fans, the organizers--and a wealth of photographs and graphic memorabilia, Woodstock is the ultimate celebration of a landmark in modern cultural history. Woodstock is organized in three parts: - Origins sets the stage by describing the counterculture of the time, along with the festival's organization, fundraising, buzz-building tactics, ticket selling and publicity, and site building. - The Event --the heart of the project--includes a log with a run-down of each of the 32 acts, in the order they appeared, one spread to each name. Fans and politics are also featured prominently here. - The Aftermath focuses on media coverage, follow-up festivals, Michael Wadleigh and Thelma Schoonmaker's documentary, and Woodstock's enduring legacy.
