Huntington Beach, CA, August 20, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- It has been 40 years since Woodstock, a music and art festival, was held at Max Yasgur's 600 acre dairy farm in the rural town of Bethel, New York. The Three Days of Peace and Music took place from August 15 to August 18, 1969 and exemplified the hippie counterculture of the late 1960s – early 1970s. Thirty-two of the best-known musicians of the day performed for nearly half a million festival attendees. Although attempts have been made over the years to emulate the festival, the original event has proven to be unique and legendary. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest moments in popular music history and was listed on Rolling Stone's 50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll.
