If you were around for it – there are generations of kids who envy you! 45 years ago Woodstock begins its ‘3 Days of Peace and Music.’ Many of the performers went on to huge music careers, others passed away far too soon, and others were never heard from musically again.

Woodstock was meant to be a 3 day performance for around 60,000 fans. It ended up bleeding into a fourth day and there were over 400,000 thousand attendees, two deaths, and three births.

It’s really cool to look over the list of performers to see who played, what songs they did, and where they are now. Check out the show list below and let us know who you would have liked to see!
