It defined a generation, exemplified an era: Woodstock was unlike anything that has ever happened before or since?and August 2009 marks the 40th anniversary of this seminal event. Relive the moment and ?get back to the garden with this day-by-day, act-by-act account of everything that went down on Yasgurs Farm. With interviews and quotes from those who were there?the musicians, the fans, the organizers?and a wealth of photographs and graphic memorabilia, Woodstock is the ultimate celebration of a landmark in modern cultural history.

Woodstock is organized in three parts:

- Origins sets the stage by describing the counterculture of the time, along with the festivals organization, fundraising, buzz-building tactics, ticket selling and publicity, and site building.

- The Event?the heart of the project?includes a log with a run-down of each of the 32 acts, in the order they appeared, one spread to each name. Fans and politics are also featured prominently here.

- The Aftermath focuses on media coverage, follow-up festivals, Michael Wadleigh and Thelma Schoonmakers documentary, and Woodstocks enduring legacy.
