the beat generation
The Beat Generation
  • Before hippies there were products of the Beat generation known as “Beatniks”
  • Mainly started by post WWII writers such as Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs, and Jack Kerouac.
  • These writers were the main focus of obscenity in the late 1950’s from Ginsberg’s Howl and Burroughs’s Naked Lunch.
the beat generation1
The Beat Generation
  • These writings portrayed a new side of a counter culture sought out as being “Beat”
  • The authors portrayed lifestyles of non-conformity such as
  • experimentation with drugs, alternative forms of sexuality, an interest in Eastern religion, a rejection of materialism and the idealizing of exuberant, unexpurgated means of expression and being.
  • The original “Beat” authors meet in New York after allegations of obscenity
  • Then they went to San Francisco and became close with figures of the San Francisco Renaissance, which in turn lead to the ideology of the Hippie counter-culture.
  • This is what made San Francisco such a hot spot for hippies.
  • Hippie derived from “Hipster”

the set up
The Set Up
  • Roberts and Rosenman placed an ad in The New York Times that stated: "Young men with unlimited capital looking for interesting, legitimate investment opportunities and business propositions," they met Kornfeld and Lang soon after for a business meeting.
the set up1
The Set Up
  • The original idea from Kornfeld and Lang was to create a recording studio for rock musicians such as Bob Dylan who lived in Woodstock, NY
  • This morphed into a 3 day concert to raise money for the studio with an anticipated 50,000 person attendance.
  • This was very underestimated….
the venue
The Venue
  • The festival was to be held at Max Yasgur’s 600 acre farm in Bethel, New York.
  • It was to be $7 for one day, $13 for two days, and $18 for three days, which could be purchased in select stores or via mail order.
