This historic t-shirt has stood the test of time, made for the very first Woodstock Festival in 1969. The water printed graphic has aged well, featuring the iconic guitar and dove logo. Billed as the Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music, the festival has come to be one of the most memorable moments in the history of music in the U.S., and a defining moment for the counterculture of the 1960s.
After a last-minute location change to Bethel, New York, festival planners vastly underestimated the unprecedented sizes of the crowds, ceding to allow free entry to the masses coming up the hill. Over the course of the 3 days, festival goers saw the likes of Arlo Guthrie, Joan Baez, Janis Joplin, Country Joe McDonald, Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and Jimi Hendrix to close the festival.
All of Woodstock '69 was recorded for the documentary film, Woodstock, directed by Michael Wadleigh. The filmmakers had trouble finding funding, eventually winning over an executive at Warner Bros., and the crew took to Bethel to document the festival. The film has since been inducted into the Library of Congress National Film Registry.
Fits like a modern unisex adult medium. Shirt is distressed, original from 1969. Paper thin and worn in with small holes, see pics.
