This Is How The Woodstock Festival 1969 Redefined Hippie Music And Fashion!

The Woodstock Music and Art Festival was a three-day rock music festival from 15th to 19th August 1969, at the Max Yasgur’s dairy farm in the town of Bethel, New York. It was one of the famous festivals ever and was somewhat the trending of the “Hippie Era.”

The festival was called Woodstock as the investors behind it were called the ‘Woodstock Ventures’. It was a festival attracting over 400,000 people which ultimately extended to four days instead of three.

Thirty-two acts were performed over the course of these days. Some of the performing artists were Sweetwater, Tim Hardin, Ravi Shankar (played through the rain), Santana, The Incredible String Band, Joe Cracker, and the Grease band, John Winter, and Jimmy Hendricks.

The day of psychedelic bands continued with such musicians as Santana, Janis Joplin, Grateful Dead, and The Who- to name just a few. Woodstock was not just about sex, drugs, and rock n roll. It was about spirituality, love, sharing, helping each other, and living in peace and harmony.

When it comes to fashion and trends, it’s true that what goes around, comes around. Hippie fashion was at its peak and it surely gave us major fashion goals for future. Janice Joplin’s flared jumpsuit and round sunglasses or Grace Slick’s fringe, all lace up became an eye candy to the paparazzi.

After Woodstock Festival, so many festivals with slightly different lineup took place. But nothing could match the 400,000 bulk of people that turned out at the Woodstock. All the other festivals also had the same motive, i.e to bring the Woodstock vibe – carefree, simple living, loving one another, and enjoying it all amidst the music. The Woodstock organizers (John Roberts, Joel Rosenman, and Micheal Lang) reportedly said “Woodstock is more than a moment in time. It is a way of being in the world. The 1970’s spirit lives on and so does the 1970’s fashion.”

The Woodstock Festival was mainly about escaping from all the disturbances in the world, to live and dress totally carefree. It was about wearing headbands, floating maxis, leather jackets, wearing boots and tie-dye tees, and dancing to psychedelic music.
