Woodstock music festival: 50 years celebration
Fans gathered on Thursday (August 15) to mark 50 years since the Woodstock Music & Art Festival.
The 1969 extravaganza, New York, became one of the most significant counter-culture events in history.
Acts such as Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Joan Baez and the Grateful Dead all played, paving the way for the modern music festival as we know it today.
More than 400,000 people turned up; organisers were expecting just 50,000.
The event was cancelled after organisers lost headliners including Miley Cyrus, Jay-Z and some performers from the 1969 event.
The commemorations were run by the Bethel Woods Centre for the Arts. There were fireworks, food, and, of course, music.
