47 years ago today, 400,000 people showed up to a New York farm for the greatest music festival of all time
This August marks the 47th anniversary of the famed Woodstock Music and Art Festival, which took place on Max Yasgur's 600-acre farm in Bethel, New York.
Every notable musician of the time, from Jimi Hendrix to Janis Joplin, played during the three-day festival. Even with 400,000 attendees, zero reports of violence were made to the police during or after the festival, and with two babies reportedly born on the premises, it certainly was a weekend of peace, love, and music.
Ahead, take a look at those who made it into the music festival's premises and became part of the renowned "Woodstock generation."
