Transcript of woooooodstock

Woodstock Woodstock was a three day concert that was all about sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll. The concert took place on August 15-18, 1969, and is seen today as the icon of hippies in the 60's. On the first day of the concert twelve bands
played, including Joan Baez, Tim Hardin, Bert Sommer, and Richie Havens. On the second day of Woodstock, the music got a little
better. Bands such as the Grateful Dead, Mountain, Santana, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, and the Who played. August 15 August 16 August 17 The third day of the concert ran into the
early morning of August 18. The bands that
played include Joe Cocker, Ten Years After,
Sha-Na-Na, and Jimi Hendrix who closed the show. Cancelled Acts Canceled Acts Not everyone who was scheduled
to play at Woodstock played. 5 bands
cancelled their places at the concert
and they were the Jeff Beck Group, Iron
Butterfly, Lighthouse, Joni Mitchell, and
Ethan Brown. Declined Invitations Many bands turned down Woodstock
because they didn't think it was going to
be a big deal, or they had a higher paying
gig elsewhere. Huge bands such as the
Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, and the
Byrds were among the bands to decline
Woodstock. Woodstock Facts Woodstock was three days of peace, no violence
occured. Woodstock drew a crowd of 400,000
people and abandoned ticket collecting because
of the mass number of people. The concert was
held in Bethel, New York, in the Catskill Mountains. Drug Problems Drugs were a big problem at Woodstock. Nearly all
of the 80 drug arrests at Woodstock were made on
LSD, amphetamines, and heroine. The majority of the
crowd were marijuana smokers, but they were not
arrested. Sources http://www.digitaldreamdoor.com/pages/music0_woodstock.html http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2009/07/19/fast-facts-woodstock/ Jimi Hendrix playing the solo to "Hey Joe"
