“Beautiful Experience” or “Political Protest”?

STORY BY: Daune L.
YEAR: 1969
LOCATION: Woodstock, NY

Dauna was at Woodstock for 3 days. Every year, on the anniversary, Montreal radio stations ask her to come for an interview. Last time, she went to the studio and was told another guy from Woodstock would also be interviewed. When asked about her experience at Woodstock, she said it was incredible, "a beautiful music festival." The other person said, "No, it was a political statement" and went into a diatribe. Dauna hadn't been prepared for the different point of view and was stunned. Thanks for sharing, Dauna.
