Woodstock happened 40 years ago in 1969 and is still considered by many to be one of the best and most momentous musical festivals ever. This director's cut is over four hours long and won a 1970 Oscar for documentaries. You get two hours of extra rare performance footage – some of which has never been seen before. Even though it is four decades later the public is still fascinated and entertained by Woodstock. Many youths today still relate to what happened at Woodstock. The festival – its music and values – has become a timeless wonder.
Some of the greatest rock musicians performed at Woodstock. Joan Baez, Santana, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, Joe Cocker, and Creedence Clearwater Revival were all there. We get their performances plus rare ones by The Grateful Dead and Johnny Winter. The performances are there alongside interviews with Martin Scorsese, Hugh Hefner and others. We also get the story of how the festival and film were made.
Woodstock was more than music; it was an event. A whole generation stood together and made sure their voices were heard. It is forty years later and the message is still relevant. Woodstock was held in the rural town of Bethel, New York at the dairy farm of Max Yasgur. 500,000 people came to and took part in Woodstock.
