In 1969, technology was booming and times were changing. The first man landed on the moon, the internet was created, and the most important music festival in the world opened its gates... or should we say, its gates were stormed by over 400,000 attendees. Woodstock was advertised as three days of peace and music featuring 32 different artists including Jimi Hendrix, The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, The Who, and more all sharing the same stage. While everything with the festival might not have gone as planned, there was a shortage of food, bathrooms and an overabundance of rain and people, it made a huge impact on the year and music as a whole. Get more insight with a sneak peek of this week's A Year In Music: 1969 above and learn more about the historical events and the music that changed the world with the full episode this SUNDAY at 9/8c!
