We had been on a flight for about three hours, and I was very scared, because that was my first time on a plane.

At around 12:30 I can distinctly remember thinking, oh god, here comes my favorite song, fearing for my life but overwhelmed with excitement.

The Woodstock music and arts festival was an unimaginable success. Millions of people from all over came to take part in this sharing of great rock music in one of the most successful nonviolent rebellions against the Vietnam War. This festival was filled with young hippies who overflowed the surrounding town and even caused a serious lack of supplies. Rock festivals popped up all over America after Woodstock and the spirit of rock and roll traveled faster than ever before.

I think Woodstock captures the essence of the 60’s because of the people’s love of rock-n-roll, their hatred of war, and the love that was spread throughout the estimated 500,000 people in attendance. John Roberts, Joel Rosenman, Artie Kornfeld, and Mike Lang were the four organizers
