Woodstock Music & Art Fair was a music festival held on a 600 acre (2.4 km²; 240 ha, 0.94 mi²) dairy farm in the rural town of Bethel, New York from August 15 to August 18, 1969. Thirty-two acts performed during the sometimes rainy weekend in front of nearly half a million concertgoers. 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.[dead link]
Neil Young skipped most of the acoustic set (the exceptions being his compositions "Mr. Soul" and "Wonderin'") and joined Crosby, Stills & Nash, but refused to be filmed during the electric set; by his own report, Young felt the filming was distracting both performers and audience from the music. Young's "Sea of Madness," heard on the album, was drawn from the Fillmore East concert, one month after the festival. The original recording was later restored on the six-CD boxed set Woodstock: 40 Years On [Back To Yasgur's Farm]
Jimi Hendrix - 9:00am - 11:10am After being introduced as the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Hendrix corrected the new group's name to "Gypsy Sun and Rainbows, for short it's nothin’ but ‘A Band Of Gypsies." Later during the set he introduced them as "Sky Church."
