Transcript of Woodstock

Woodstock WHO WHAT was Woodstock? WHEN WAS WOODSTOCK ? Where WHY? The baby boomers were earning a new label during Woodstock. They became known as Hippies or flower children. Without organization these people came together for common causes. DRUGS MUSIC Woodstock was during 1969, which was right at the same time of the U.S.'s involvement in Vietnam. Many were against going into the war, and made it clear through their protests and rallies. 3 days of Peace & Music was the common theme of Woodstock. This flier shows an example of how the creators intended the event to be extremely peaceful. Most people present at the event were not "entirely there." Many experimented with drugs, the most common being LSD. This picutre shows LSD on a common blotter paper, which is the most common way to take this drug. Through Woodstock, music was entirely changed. Artists pushed the limits and decided to create their own style to music. They urged new ideas into the music scene. Jimi Hendrix remix to The Star Spangled Banner is a clear example of this. "Never doubt that a small group of thoughful, committed individuals can change the world, indeed it's the only thing that ever has." --- Margaret Meade Woodstock was in a small town called Bethel in New York.
