Jimmy Hendrix's Perfomance.Jimmy Hendrix played the last day as a closing performance. The two hour set during Woodstock 1969 was the longest of Hendrix’s career and in that span he’d managed to outpace his entire backing band and continue on his own as a face melting solo act.
trash cleaned upAll the trash left behind from the hippies was cleaned up after 6 months. This is very ironic because they were trying to protect the envirmental.
Green Day mud fightGreen Day's performance on stage was undoubtedly the best, visually. A punk band, I think their music is spectacular compared to the innovative punk along the lines of the Levellers and Fugazi. In fact, they are so stereotypically punk that it almost seems like they are parodying it: the lead singer and drummer had brightly coloured blue and green hair and their lyrics are whiny. But they were tireless on stage and pushed the momentum to its limits. The best thing about their show no doubt.

A New York State Police spokesman confirmed yesterday that detectives are investigating reports of four rapes at the festival, which was held over the weekend in Rome, N.Y. Crisis
Woodstock Went Wrong (continued)Sexual assaults took place in the mosh pit, the extremely crowded area in front of the stage where audience members dance to the music by thrashing about and deliberately bumping into each other.

In the year 1969 the world came together to witness the largest music festival in history; an event that changed not only the United States, but the entire world. Now in 2010 the Woodstock nation hopes to resurrect the spirit of the original festival and bring people together to celebrate peace, music, and positive change.
