woodstock 69 with wordpress

we try to set up woodstock69 with the help of wordpress. wordpress is a simple and free software to handle blogs. in the meantime wordpress has become a nice content management system. what we need now is the appropriate woodstock 69 content. some historical images, articles and perhaps videos would be nice. this would help us to reanimate the woodstock69 website and to revive the spirit of the woodstock 69 festival.

  1. I was 14 when Woodstock took place and I wanted to go in the worst way, but my parents said ABSOLUTELY NOT! Yes, they shouted. I decided to find a way to go. I asked my friends if any of their older brothers or sisters were going figuring I could hitch a ride with them, but that didn’t work out. I asked my friends why they weren’t going with their brothers and sisters, Their parents said No, too. My parents tried to make it up to me. They bought me the soundtrack for Christmas. I wore that record out! When I read Something Good For A Change I felt I found a person that I would love to work with and hang with. I think the work that Wavy has done is miraculous. Thank You Wavy!

      Hey Sue!

      For my high school Society and Culture major work, I’m doing a 4,000 word essay on music festivals and how they can help define a generation, naturally I’m doing a focus study on Woodstock.

      Because I’m only 17 and live in Australia, it’s so hard trying to find people who were alive at the time of Woodstock and were affected by it, so maybe you could just comment on how it affected you and why you wanted to go so bad?

      Just anything would be great and I would really appreciate it!

      Hope you see this!

      Thanks heaps! x

      • Hi Sue, I just read the book,”Woodstock revisited,” and I found this site. I always wanted to go to Australia and climb Ayers Rock. I went to Woodstock completely by accident. My friend Dennis N got me a job at the Monmouth College Bookstore where we were both going to school then. He’s Portuguese and lives in Texas now. His friend big Bill Bay was supposed to go with him, but had to study for a History test on Monday. He was in summer school, so Denny had an extra space in the car with his two other friends, Smoothie and Blue (their nicknames) and asked me to go. I had never gone to anything like that and when he asked me to go to a Rock Festival, I thought it was a geology convention!!! (I grew up on a chicken farm in New Jersey about 40 miles from New York) So I went and it that it really changed my life. I became a plainclothes hippie after that. Grew my hair long and wore bell-bottom jeans and grew a mustache. More next time…

    i still was a teenager too when woodstock was first shown in a movie theater in our place (bacolod city, philippines). i was in high school then and was not allowed to view the movie since it was rated for adult only and i was so frustrated. but i was able to get a complete copy of the soundtrack on tapes. thank you that you were able to create such a website as this, commemorating the days of the woodstock.
    now i got the complete video where i can watch over and over again and still awestruck by its sceneries and the music.

    Cody lost his verginity at woodstock. He was high off of LCD. Then he got herpes and then soon found out that he had HIV. The end.

    I believe HIV had not been invented yet…sex was still somewhat safe in the way that one could have it w/o dying .ie medications could be administered for rapid repair

    • This is Marty Nepo. Are you the suzy creamcheese that went to Monmouth College??? From Scranton,PA??? That makes bugs by Suzy??? If so, then please reply. Reach me at natureboy dot 4 at juno dot com

  5. suzycreamcheese says:

    ps. however, Cody would know what’s going on inside better than myself…..

  6. I was there so they tell me . wow what a year lol

  7. Roxanne Starr says:

    I was seven all i remember is my mom lost me and my sister,someone took us to this big tent thats all remeber

  8. we broke down going to it.i still have my long hair. grovy man. wish we could go back.

  9. I was a 15 year old girl when my parents let me barrow thier VW bus and take 9 of my friends to Woodstock, I had very progressive parents.I don’t remember a lot but i do remeber staying after Sunday and helping clean up. This sounds commendable but I really stayed because I’d met a young man; 17 year old David Drieling. I also was not sure where all my friends were and had to find the VW bus.There was a lot of mud we did acid all week end long and some how got a hotel room on Sunday and cleaned up. David ended up riding back to Brockport NY where I lived and my father taught at the college there. David hung out for a couple of days.Then he went back to NYC where he lived and we wrote a couple of times but then lost touch. I’m married now and am happy but I do wonder what ever happened to David. I think his Dad was a dentist and I want to say his address was on 21st Ave if that makes any sense.Woodstock changed my life I learned how to navigate a festival and be with a lot of people at a very young age, it gave me balls.

      • if its not too late I will help if I can!
        you can reach me at kcaven at att dot net-
        any time!!

      • Hi ash cant, I wrote to you last week about my experiences at Woodstock. I was a college student at the time. It changed my life. I became a plainclothes hippie. I stayed in school, but grew my hair long, wore bellbottoms and stated rebelling against everything, especially the war. I would very much like to talk to you about it. Read the book, “Woodstock revisited.” It has essays from people who were there. 90% of them all said that the experience changed their lives, like mine did. If you want to talk, then reach me at natureboy.4 at juno dot com I think it would be cool to talk to someone via the web in Australia. I’m in New Jersey near the shore…marty

    I came in to the world the very first night
    At Woodstock. 1969.

  11. went to woodstock; lost my buffalo sandals, water logged and muddy. Clean? Ha, took skinny dips in the pond!!! What a nightmare!!! But who cared???? We loved it!!!!

  12. I was 4 at the time and don’t remember it LOL my time was the 80’s. Now that was a decade!

  13. I was a Junior in high school when this concert began. My brother already graduated but had no interest in going. I’m glad someone saved photos and music tracks for the few that couldn’t go. Ofcourse we all had our own garage band, played for a while but everyone went their own way, we finalyl found each other now that we are, of age, I wiped the dust off the old guitar and had it redone. I remember the price I paid for it a whole $90. It’s a 1964 Hagstrom 1. Our band had all Vox amps my friends all had super beatles they sent them in for repair, were getting together for the first time since 1971. Thanks for listening Gary

  14. I was there until Sunday night. Met Wavy Gravy in the pink and white field hospital who was still calling himself Hugh (Romney) where I volunteered to work as I also had a Red Cross card. The festival site was huge and while the music was awesome it was a side show to the entire experience of being there. I have lots of photos, some which were published in a book by Joel Makover called Woodstock, An Oral History. Can someone please send me info on how to share these photos and upload to this site?

    • Patricia Twomey says:

      Would love to see the photos – I am at University doing a degree in Youth and Community Work (I am 66 now anda pensioner) and still going to festivals. Last year did Electric Picnic via a local charity so got in free, free transport, free secure camping, workers chill out marquee and 15 euros a day for doing a few hours at one of the bars each day. Brilliant. Oh we also got 2 free drinks at the end of our shift which we soon found out we could swop at some of the food stalls for pizza etc. Heaven. Going again this year accompanied by 2 of my gransons and their friends – same way as last year, charity, bar, etc. How cool is that – going to a festival with you grandkids. Can’t wait. Also Paulo Nutini is playing and he is amazing.

  15. I watched it via tape delay from Thailand when I was 13 and it sure changed the way I looked at music……….I knew that first day that the goofy Beatlemania was OVER-
    This was big boy music…….not a bunch of squealing little girls……
    I went to the first festival when I got back to the states and havent quit in 50 yrs

  16. I was 11 when Woodstock happened, but a friend of mine has a Woodstock weekend at his place every year and this just happens to be the weekend. I’m missing it because I have to work but my husband and a couple of friends are there now having a blast. I hope to get to go next year.

    I was at Woodstock as a teenager… we had no idea at the time it was going to be such a huge and iconic event. We went there from Canada with a case of beer in the trunk of our car and partied all the way there making stops frequently to chat and drink with others we bumped into on our journey. It was a great concerts but It had it’s tense moments when some violence broke out on stage and in the crowd. Sure miss those days.
