Picture of the Day and B'days for August 15Posted August 14, 2008, 10:31 pm
The Woodstock Music and Art Fair opened at Max Yasgur's dairy farm in Bethel, New York. Thirty-two of the best-known musicians of the day appeared during the sometimes rainy weekend. Although attempts have been made over the years to recreate the festival, the original event has proven to be unique and legendary. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest moments in popular music history and was listed on Rolling Stone's 50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll.
