LIFE Photographers Capture the True Essence of the Legendary Woodstock Festival
In 1969, nearly half a million music lovers united at a dairy farm in New York for the legendary and outrageous Woodstock Festival.
A three-day festival, it was publicized as “An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music”, 32 bands, which included The Who and Kimi Hendrix. To capture the iconic and scandalous moment in history were two LIFE photographers, Bill Eppridge and John Dominis.
Eppridge and Dominis managed to capture the essence of the festival and the element of what it meant to be a true flower child and free spirit, roaming around naked in muddy fields.
