I was 18 when Clayton, Gary, and I hopped into Claytons VW Bug and headed from the town of Woodstock N.Y. to Bethal an hour and a half away. It was Thursday noon. I had my $18 dollars worth of three day tickets, a package of frozen hot dogs, a package of Oreo cookies, four cans of soda, and an eight man canvas tent we put up on a hill just the other side of the road in back of the stage when we got there. We slept in the tent the first night - then went our separate ways.
One highlight for me was sleeping on top of an MG convertible parked beside the dirt road in back of the stage. I sat back using the windshield like a recliner and slept waiting for the next set. Around 2:00a.m. I woke to the crowd roar and intro to Piece of My Heart. I looked over and could see strong blue light shooting through Janis Joplin's hair and was mesmerized. Traffic out was unreal as people left- did not get home till Monday night
It was a magic time, those three days will never to be replicated again.

Will never see anything like it again! Just an amazing event. So inspiring and I am happy the history of WOODSTOCK lives on. I was 17 in 1969. And very much a 'hippie' living in the Southern California desert.
I found this site from a Travel Leisure magazine where I can dream, as most places are for the rich (very rich), but a nice article on the Catskills and it included Betel and the museum.
I am a coastal gal in North San Diego and have been for 50 years. But I am still, to this day, happy to have been a part of that generation and the Woodstock event.

52 years and counting, I celebrate every year.
I was 17 that summer and Woodstock has remained a central part of my life.
Hi Vernon, Fred and Taylor.

I wish someone would post how far of a journey they drove in 1969 like from Florida or Atlanta and what where the highways like ?

I had a great time at the Woodstock festival when I was 18 years old. Travelled in a VW van (of course) from Atlantic City, NJ where I lived at the time (now I live in Boston).
I enjoyed Ravi Shankar, Richie Havens, CSN&Y, Janis Joplin, Canned Heat, The Who, Sly and the Family Stone, Creedence Clearwater Revival among others.

We aactually bought tickets for Saturday and Sunday. We there Saturday midday til Sunday morning . Jefferson Airplane sang the star spangled banner to end Saturday's event

I remember at about 3AM with bonfires rimming the bowl, Sly and the Family Stone had all 500 thousand of us singing "I wanna take you higher, I wanna take you higher' I get chills even writing this. I'll never forget that. It was "worth the price of admiision", though by then the fences were down. I wish I kept my tickets.
