Auction Celebrates 45 Years Of Woodstock History
Worldwide LIVE auction to offer nearly 1000 items featuring many direct from Woodstock.
-- Minneapolis, MN. - Bethel, NY
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
This August marks the 45th anniversary of the Woodstock Music and Art Fair, the three-day festival in upstate New York that was, for many, a high-water mark of the 1960s youth counterculture. The festival, made famous by worldwide press coverage, an Academy Award-winning documentary, two soundtrack albums, and an anthemic song by Joni Mitchell, brought together 32 amazing acts and half-a-million fans for “three days of peace and music” in Bethel, New York. They gathered on 600 acres of land owned by dairy farmer Max Yasgur, and despite torrential rain, shortages of food and water, and massive traffic jams, the festival is widely considered a pivotal moment of an entire generation.
