Popular music and youth unrest converged at the Woodstock Music and Art Fair held in August of 1969. Concert organizers intended to have the show in Woodstock, an upstate New York writers and artists colony, but the offer was rejected. Six hundred acres of farmland in nearby Bethel became the concert site.
 
Promoters hoped to sell 100,000 tickets at $7 each for the three-day event. But by Sunday, the final day, over 300,000 people had arrived. Many had entered without paying admission.
 
The overwhelming crowd made maintaining proper sanitation, shelter, and food difficult. Even with the problems that arose – like traffic jams, lack of drinking water, and severe thunderstorms – the Woodstock festival was considered a success. The crowd coped with the inadequate conditions and behaved peacefully during the entire concert, even though there were few security members on hand.
 
Performances by artists like Joan Baez, Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, and The Grateful Dead established Woodstock as one of the most significant events of the 1960s. It symbolized the unity of the “flower child” generation, war protesters, and youth in general who gathered for three days of music and peace.
