If you were at Woodstock 50 years ago today, you heard:

Richie Havens (Freedom)
Sri Swami Satchidananda
Bert Sommer
Tim Hardin
Ravi Shankar
Arlo Guthrie (Coming Into Los Angeles)
Joan Baez (Joe Hill)

I wouldn't have made Woodstock so I would probably would have been at the Isle of Wight Festival where I would have heard:

Bob Dylan (I still listen to him today)
The Band
The Who
The Moody Blues
Joe Cocker
Bonzo Dog Band
John Lennon
George Harrison
Eric Clapton
Richie Havens

But then, that year, 1969 I would probably have been in hospital having surgery.

50 years ago today I started being sick of hearing about Woodstock.

My mother always said if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything.

If everyone who says they went to Woodstock did, it would have been one very crowded farm.

From what I've seen and read, it was one very crowded farm!

I had tickets but couldn't go because I ended up having an interview that day. My brother went with my car and friends.
A year later I went to he Atlanta pop festival and
saw/heard many of the same artists.

Fifty years ago I was a small child living on the Isle Of Wight.

My main memory is of thousands and thousands of hippies ambling along the Island lanes….

I was on convalescent leave from Walter Reed, recovering from the last surgery required to put my digestive system back together and certain that I was going to get a medical discharge (I didn't).

Some years later, I ran into one of my roommates from my disastrous first attempt at college who had been a medic at Woodstock; he told me he was so busy that he didn't remember hearing any of the music.

I still remember a cartoon where the festival was parodied. "Woodstock Slappy" from "Animaniacs" Highlight,Slappy Squirrel and nephew Skippy,as the Who are onstage,do a variant of Abbott & Costello's "Who's On First" bit. And a poem in Mad Magazine written by Frank Jacobs and drawn by Sergio Aragones ("I remember,I remember,the wonderous Woodstock music fair") Myself,I was only 6 y/o when it happened and wasn't anywhere near it except for what I saw on TV.
