The Big Story for August 17 is Woodstock
On this day in 1969, the grooviest event in music history--the Woodstock Music Festival--draws to a close after three days of peace, love and rock 'n' roll in upstate New York.
Conceived as "Three Days of Peace and Music," Woodstock was a product of a partnership between John Roberts, Joel Rosenman, Artie Kornfield and Michael Lang. Their idea was to make enough money from the event to build a recording studio near the small artsy town of Woodstock, New York. Not able to find an appropriate venue in Woodstock, the promoters contacted Max Yasgur, the owner of a 600-acre dairy farm in Bethel, New York about 50 miles outside of town.
