Woodstock: Three Days That Rocked the World
by Mike Evans
No descriptions found.
August 2009 marks the 40th anniversary of this seminal event. Book offers day-by-day, act-by-act account of everything that went down on Yasgur's Farm. Includes interviews and quotes from those who were there--the musicians, the fans, the organizers--and a wealth of photographs and graphic memorabilia. Book is organized in three parts: - Origins sets the stage by describing the counterculture of the time, along with the festival's organization, fundraising, buzz-building tactics, ticket selling and publicity, and site building. - The Event--the heart of the project--includes a log with a run-down of each of the 32 acts, in the order they appeared, one spread to each name. Fans and politics are also featured prominently here. - The Aftermath focuses on media coverage, follow-up festivals, Michael Wadleigh and Thelma Schoonmaker's documentary, and Woodstock's enduring legacy.
