“Woodstock: 40 Years Later,” a co-production of VH1 Rock Docs and History, will premiere on cable channels History and VH1 in August.
The two-hour documentary, which will be simulcast on VH1 Classic, is directed by Academy Award winner Barbara Kopple and executive produced by Michael Lang, organizer of the original Woodstock music festival.
The documentary will explore the planning phase leading up to Woodstock and the concert itself from the point of view of musicians, activists and fans while incorporating archival images and music.
The documentary is produced in association with Cabin Creek Films and Woodstock Ventures.

  1. Well, this is good. I’ll be able to see all of the things I missed, when I was there, and too FU to remember !! Hope it’s as good as I thought it was. Robbie

  2. In August 1969 I followed a carload of kids from Tarrytown NY up the NYS Thruway enroute to the Wooddstock Festival at Bethel. Stuck in traffic on 17b a few miles form tthe site, the door of the car in fronnt of me opened and a young 17 year old with long straight hair and no shoes approached me. We decided to ride together down the shoulder toward the concert. The idea was to hook up with the car and my gear left behind later when traffic cleared. It never did. I spent three of the most exciting days of my life with this beautiful young girl. Last year August of 2008 we returned together to the very site on the 39th anniversary. We toured the museum now erected on the spot we sat in the mud so long ago. I turned to take her picture as she left the building. She was on the phone checking on the grandkids OUR grandkids! Now that’s really FAR OUT!
