The definitive account of the most famous music festival of all time: Woodstock.

“[A] vivid and lively account of those hectic and historic three days….The best fly-on-the-wall account, tantamount to having had a backstage pass to an iconic event.”
—New York Post

The Woodstock music festival of 1969 is an American cultural touchstone, and no book captures the sights, sounds, and behind-the-scenes machinations of the historic gathering better than Michael Lang’s New York Times bestseller, The Road to Woodstock. USA Today calls this fascinating, entertaining, and blissfully nostalgic look back, “Invaluable.” In The Road to Woodstock, Michael Lang recaptures the magic for the generation that was there…and for the generations that followed.

Just in time for the 50th Anniversary of the Woodstock festival, this definitive volume tells you everything you need to know about the most famous three days in music history.

    I y saw the movie "Taking Woodstock" which got me hooked on the subject once more. I stumbled onto this book and downloaded the sample. I was immediately fascinated by the story of this audacious kid who, against all odds realized his own personal dream. Not to be missed for anyone interested in pop culture.
