Woodstock Music And Art Fair In 1969, the Woodstock Music and Art Fair drew more than 450,000 people to a pasture in Sullivan county. For four days, this site became a "countercultural mini-nation" in which drugs were all but legal, music was plenty, and love was free. The music began Friday afternoon at 5:07 p.m. August 15, and continued until mid-morning Monday August 18.

Woodstock was the idea of four young men: John Roberts, Joel Rosenman, Artie Kornfeld and Michael Lang. The oldest of t ...

In addition, narcotics of all kind and description, from hash and acid, to speed and horse, were freely available (Peace Mecca 3).
