Transcript of Woodstock

Three days to change the world Day 2 Day 3 Sunday The dramatic change Bibliography The Producers By order of performance Saturday Friday Day 1 "Three million people to me, or even half a million people, constitute just a nice, big, large spirit."
-Richie Havens (A) Woodstock saw the African-American guitarist and ex-military serviceman Jimi Hendrix, playing his defamiliarising version of ‘The star spangled banner’. Pop festival culture was a significant American export. The links between festival culture and nomadic lifestyle are strong, herein lies the connection of traveler culture in the form of seasonal celebrations or rural markets.What festivals do though is evidence the sheer power and desire of music within the counterculture (B) "Rainless saturday concerts bring euphoric peaks."

-Stephen Stills (A) As the Woodstock scene spread throughout the country people started to open up to the idea. 1970 brought on a big change for homes and schools. The way people dressed was different the way they spent their time, with the 60's coming to a close they not only ended a decade but a way of thinking. And the people who were influenced by Woodstock grew up they became the people in society who held power. Woodstock played a very large role in the shaping of the lives of everyone it touched. (B) A.

C."The woodstock festivals." Woodstock. N.p.. Web. 13 Jan 2013. <http://www.woodstock.com/themusic.php>. Woodstock was three days that changed the world. Because of the counter culture, drugs and longing for peace. So what really happened those three days of mud, music and rain? What was Woodstock that it had such a great impact on counter culture? If the music hadn’t happened, nothing would be happening... The mode of the music changed, it changed in the 1950s, and it shook the walls of the city. And there would be no women’s lib, no civil rights movement—no nothing (B) Who took part in the performance and making of woodstock that inspired so many people to show up? Saturday, August 16
