Woodstock was the name given to a music festival held in the United States of America in 1969. The festival attracted an audience of nearly a half million. It was a 3 day weekend of peace and music.

Woodstock was the sweet brainchild of Michael Lang, Artie Kornfeld, Joel Rosenman and John Roberts. Roberts and Rosenman were entrepreneurs from York City, with incredibly high aspirations. They were in hopes of “making it big” with their recording studio.

Organizers of Woodstock had said that they were expecting no more than 50,000 people to attend. On the first day of the festival, people poured onto the property. People were sneaking in through gaps in fences and festival just didn’t have enough manpower to keep up. At that point, the only option was to declare it a free concert.

All of this accomplished by 4 aspiring businessmen. It was regarded as a pivotal moment in the town, as well as in music history.
