Girls From Woodstock Music Festival: Stunning Photos Depicting The Hippies Fashion Of Late 1960s

Woodstock was a music festival held in 1969 in Bethel, New York. This music festival was organized by a bunch of 20-year-olds on Max Yasgur’s dairy farm. The festival was crazy; organizers had anticipated 200,000 participants. However, the crowd doubled in number crossing 400,000 attendees. The Woodstock festival ran out of food the first day, the traffic was like hell, drugs were flowing freely, but overall the festival was peaceful. Popular bands and artists including Creedence Clearwater Revival, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Joe Cocker participated in this historic music festival. Thirty-two acts were performed outdoors despite sporadic rain. The festival also showcased hippie fashion of the 60s girls— free and flowy dresses, knee boots, bell bottoms, crop tops, short skirts, anything native American themed, and Indian patterns.
