If you haven't heard about the legendary Woodstock, believe me, you've missed a lot. In 1969 a music festival, organized by a bunch of 20-year-olds, took place in Bethel, New York in a cow pasture owned by a farmer Max Yasgur. The organizers had anticipated for the crowd to be around 200.000 people, but the lineup of the most iconic bands of the time such as Grateful Dead, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Joe Cocker have more than doubled the number of attendees to around 500.000. The Woodstock festival ran out of food the first day, the traffic was like hell, drugs were flowing free, and still, there were no violent incidents registered. All in all, it was the most iconic and the most peaceful music festival ever.
The legendary festival with it's half a million attendees illustrates the era perfectly — the groovy vibes, peaceful mindset, and of course, the 60s fashion. This time, hippie girls are what we will cover in our Woodstock pictures compilation.
The key details in the hippie fashion were free and flowy dresses, knee boots, anything native American themed, Indian patterns and everything that associated with being open and peaceful, often showing quite a lot of skin. After all, the hippie movement declared free love for all!
