On Aug. 15, 1969, more than 400,000 young people made their way to a dairy farm in the town of Bethel, New York, for the Woodstock Music and Art Fair.
Organizers of Woodstock told authorities that they were expecting only 50,000 people to show up — they were hugely mistaken.
After more people arrived than expected, organizers agreed to offer admission free of charge.
Despite the gigantic gathering of people, Woodstock is remembered for being a remarkably peaceful event.
Everyone shared in an atmosphere of love and harmony; there was nothing but good vibes all around.
The amazing things that can happen when people join together in the spirit of peace, love, and music!

001. I've always been a little bit fascinated with Woodstock but I guess I never really looked into it too much or knew many details about it. I read this article the other day and really loved how it showed just how insane and beautiful the event was. Aren't festivals amazing!?
