Woodstock was lang niet het eerste grote muziekfestival met een indrukwekkende  affiche. Het Monterey International Pop Music Festival duurde drie dagen, de affiche oogde even indrukwekkend – maar vond twee jaar eerder plaats  (op 16, 17 en 18 juni 1967).
De bekendheid van Wooodstock heeft te maken met de media.  Eén: Woodstock  ligt vlakbij New York en werd dus van in het begin door internationale media opgevolgd – ook al omdat alles uit de hand liep zonder op een ramp uit te draaien. Zo werd Woodstock sympathiek.
De echte doorbraak kwam er overigens pas in 1970, toen de organisatoren met twee nieuwigheden uitpakten. Twee: een  nooit geziene driedubbele (!) langspeelplaat met uitklapbare hoes. En drie: een documentaire gedraaid door grote filmmakers (Martin Scorcese en Michael Waldleigh) die allerlei nieuwe technieken toepasten voor wat in wezen de eerst echte rockconcertfilm zou worden. Die film deed de ronde van de wereld, tot in de kleinste uithoeken.
Onverwacht, en met enige vertraging,veranderden de bijna desastreuze “3 Days of Music and Love” tot een icoon van de hippiecultuur en the love generation.

 Woodstock wasn’t the first long music festival with an impressive bill. In fact, it was preceded by the Monterey International Pop Music Festival  (16 to 18 June, 1967), which lasted for three days and boasted a truly impressive list of performers.
The difference? The media. Woodstock isn’t far from New York and was thus covered by international media from the onset – also because almost everything got out of hand without causing any real damage…  Woodstock became something nice as it was happening. Still, the real breakthrough would come a year later, with two more media-related moves: the soundtrack and the documentary. Not just ‘a’ soundtrack, but a triple LP in a gatefold sleeve. Not just some footage, but a real documentary courtesy of Michael Waldleigh and Martin Scorcese who used new techniques to produce the first-ever real rock music movie.  In 1970 and 1971, that film would  be shown in the remotest theatres and clubs all over the world.
Unexpectedly and with some delay, the near-disaster promoted as  “3 Days of Music and Love” turned into an icon of hippie culture and the love generation.

      Hi Peter, Thanks for the response! Regretfully, to travel from Europe to the US at the time was beyond our possibilities….
