On this day in 1969, the Woodstock Music Festival opened in upstate New York, on 600 acres of land in the town of Bethel, some 50 miles from Woodstock. Billed as “three days of peace and music,” musicians who performed included Jimi Hendrix, the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, the Who, Sly and the Family Stone, the Santana Blues Band and many many others.
