40 Years of Hippies

Official Woodstock '69 Poster

It's been 40 years since the infamous Woodstock Music & Art Fair, a.k.a. Woodstock. Billed as 'An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music", it was held from August 15 -18 on a dairy farm in Bethel, New York.

Generally regarded as one of the greatest and most pivotal moments in popular music history, Rolling Stone magazine considered it one of the top 50 moments that changed rock & roll.

It was an outdoor music festival that attracted 500 000 people. Janis Joplin comes to mind as I think of all the fabulous boho styles worn that weekend.

An ode to bohemians and hippies of 1969.
Looking at the photos from Elliot Landy's collection, some could easily have been taken yesterday.
