In 1969 a monumental festival changed our world. More than half a million people came together and united peace and openness to cultural expression. Today, Woodstock lives on. The original producers of the historic festival continue to carry forward the Woodstock ethos by identifying social, environmental and political causes, organizing communities around them, developing products for those communities, and encouraging creative expression. The original festival was a three day event that actually turned into four days that involved a lot of drugs, sex, music, and mud. The question is, how is the original Woodstock festival compared to the way we have music festivals today? There are many ways in which they are similar but, there are also many things that are different.
