Woodstock took place between August 15 and August 17 in 1969. It was the weekend that changed everything about festivals. Nearly half a million people arrived at open plots of land in upstate New York, where memories that last a lifetime were made. These are some of the lesser-known photos that really show what went down during that incredible and historic weekend.
