  1. The music history of America – or rather, the history of America – is never complete without recognizing the impact and legacy of Woodstock. Held on August 15-18, 1969 in the upstate New York town of Bethel and attended by more than 400,000 self-described hippies, flower children, and Aquarians, Woodstock is more than just a music festival but a defining event for the counterculture generation and a cultural and sociopolitical touchstone for the late 1960s.

  2. Thank you City of Fullerton for continuing this annual event, even under today’s restrictions. We all look forward to live music returning to the City’s restaurants and bars soon!
