woodstock music and art festival


HISTORY MEME → [10/10] Moments: Woodstock

The Woodstock Music & Art Fair—informally, the Woodstock Festival or simply Woodstock—was a music festival attracting an audience of over 400,000 people, scheduled over three days on a dairy farm in New York from August 15 to 17, 1969, but ultimately ran four days long, ending August 18, 1969.

Billed as “An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music”, it was held at Max Yasgur’s 600-acre (240 ha; 0.94 sq mi) dairy farm in the Catskills near the hamlet of White Lake in the town of Bethel. Bethel, in Sullivan County, is 43 miles (69 km) southwest of the town of Woodstock, New York, in adjoining Ulster County.

During the sometimes rainy weekend, 32 acts performed outdoors before an audience of more than 400,000 people. It is widely regarded as a pivotal moment in popular music history, as well as the definitive nexus for the larger counterculture generation.

Rolling Stone listed it as one of the 50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll.

In between my daily job and side projects, I´ve been focused on learning more about mood, the use of colour and stylizing instead of perfect rendering and anatomy. So this was something new to me, which I had a lot of fun with. Being a fan of 60´s and 70´s music, I thought I´d do something about WOODSTOCK :) Thanks to Natalie Behle for helping me out with where to put these leaves of flowers

Hello! Do you know any Coachella fics? Have a good week! :)

Hello ! What a good fic request !

So I have some fics where they’re performing or going to music festivals, but not only Coachella.

- Dream Awake: he sun leaks through the tent wall behind him the way it leaks through eyelids, bathing the boy in an ethereal half-light as he croons.
The crowd is mesmerized. Louis is mesmerized. This is the most important person in the world, he thinks wildly, and then can’t figure out how to take it back. On a hazy day in August, Louis sees Harry perform at a music festival as an unsigned act and convinces him to spend the rest of the weekend in his company. Harry gets signed; life changes. They never really wake up from the dream. (30k, my fav!)

- The Finish Line (Is A Good Place For Us To Start) : Louis Tomlinson, one-time Formula 1 World Champion, is looking forward to the 2013 season. He’s got Zayn in his garage and Liam in his ear, he’s got Cowell Racing backing him despite former indiscretions, he’s got experience and the best race car out there. Not to mention he’s the only racer they have, after Oliver dropped out late last year.It hasn’t occurred to him that Oliver would have to be replaced by February. That is, until he finds himself at a party celebrating Harry Styles leaving Ferrari for Cowell. Harry hotshot Styles, who broke a record last year and is probably looking to make a big splash. Harry Styles, who is talented and somewhat intimidating. Harry Styles, who left Ferrari for reasons unknown and seems kind of lonely and harmless in person. Lonely, harmless, hot as fuck. Whatever.The first thing Louis does is take him under his wing. From there it’s nine months of slow-burning romance, the past catching up to them, turning into the human puppy pile that is OT5 and a lot of feelings until, of course, reaching the finish line. (121k, not music AU BUT they’re going to Szyget festival)

- ‘til morning comes, let’s tesselate  : “Please,” Harry said shaking his head slightly, “Louis and I are soul mates, probably, so he most definitely won’t mind that I lied about my tent-building skills.” aka a completely unrealistic music festival where harry and louis meet and fall completely and totally in (ridiculously sappy) love  (5.7k)

- The Future is Forever  : Hippie!harry and (punk!)louis meet at coachella.
Harry has been wanting to go ever since his sister went and didn’t invite him.
And Louis is only there because his mate had an extra ticket. (1.6k)

- now if you never shoot, you’ll never know  : based off of the prompt: “Someone needs to write a coachella fic where harry is the cute hipster boy in short shorts and a flower crown and louis is there with his friends and he just wants to know the cute boy with the flowers and they fuck in the tent and get high and spend the whole weekend together” (4k)

- Three Days of Peace, Love, and Music  : The summer of 1969 would later be nicknamed the Summer of Love, because that’s what it was. Love, or at least a drug-induced form of love, was everywhere. It was an era of freedom. It was an era of nonconformity. Make love not war, free hugs, all you need is love. Woodstock Music and Arts Festival was the pinnacle of the revolutionary sensibilities of that summer; Three Days of Peace and Music was the festival’s tagline; and Harry, Liam, and Niall were caught up in all of it. When they met Louis and Zayn at the festival, it felt like fate. It would be three days of peace, three days of love, and three days of lots and lots of music. ☮ (20k)

- straight to the vein  : Harry is a struggling musician trying to find his big break. Of all the beautiful strangers’ couches he could’ve ended up on for a night, it had to be Louis’. It’s hard to tell whether finding him is part of a dream or nightmare. (44k)

- take me to the riot    Louis can feel the morning stiffness fade away as the excitement in his gut starts to get him wild and rowdy, this short trip up to Leeds Fest reminding him that it can’t possibly get better than this: a bottle of vodka in his bag, a boy by his side, a tent over his shoulders, and the promise of a truly glorious disaster he has been craving for months.

Update (last updated on June 24th 2017)

- Dibs : Basically another Punk!Louis Flowerchild!Harry AU were there is no plot just life. they meet at Leeds, duh. Oh and Harry is cute, but I’m assuming you already knew… (2.5k)

- The songs that you sing when you’re all alone : Leeds was probably going to be the last time the two of them could be out in the world without being One Direction. Liam had said, when all the lads were hanging out at Harry and Louis’ and their plans came up, that it was easier going out alone. “Zayn and I popped into Tesco the other day,” Liam had said, “and it turned mental.” They were less recognizable alone. More than one, and they turned into a boy band. (7.3k)

- sun is shining (and so are you) : (The one where Harry and Louis go to Leeds together as Harry and Louis and come home as HarryandLouis.)(4k)

- Too good to be bad  : “You’ll never guess who’s here,” Louis rushes out, knowing very well that this is not how it’s supposed to go.
“Louis, we should focus on the mission.”
“I know, but it’s Harry, Li.”
Liam falters for a second. “Training camp, sexual awakening Harry?”
Or: Two spies, one mission, zero things left in common between them.  (24k)
