August 15, 1969 Woodstock begins in New York for three days of music, 33 performances and an attendance of more than 300,000 people.

*Bit of Trivia:

The Doors were considered as a potential performing band but canceled at the last moment. According to guitarist Robby Krieger, they turned it down because they thought it would be a “second class repeat of Monterey Pop Festival” and later regretted that decision.
