Woodstock was a music festival held on 15-18 August 1969. It attracted an audience of more than 400,000.
Woodstock is now claimed to be a pivotal moment in popular music history, as well as a definitive nexus of the 1960s counterculture. This likely in part due to the event being captured in the Academy Award-winning 1970 documentary film Woodstock, an accompanying soundtrack album, and Joni Mitchell's song "Woodstock", which commemorated the event and became a major hit. In 2017, the festival site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
