Burk Uzzle Went To Woodstock, 40 Years Ago

It has been 40 years since the peace and love generation descended in a greater mass than ever imagined on Yasgur’s farm in upstate Bethel, New York. The original festival ballooned to way more folks than the sleepy towns of Middletown or Woodstock could accommodate, so Max Yasgur very generously gave his hillside over to the organizers in what would become surely the most celebrated festival of its kind. At its conclusion, Woodstock became recognized as one of the most significant events in the history of rock music, but its effect was even grander. In an America rife with racial tension and at war in Vietnam, Woodstock defined the culture of a generation, a message of hope for a brighter and more peaceful future.

Burk Uzzle took all of these photos.

  1. Is this my post or what? Adore it...I curse the fact that no one has invented the time machine yet. I did end up sleeping a bit more, thank you! I was very surprized though because I was not nearly as tired as I thought I would be...and I will forever adore Paul Newman. He was as perfect as they come. xo
