An historical unique event.

Why the 50 years of Woodstock?

Old Fashion celebrates the memory in a sort of continuity with the event of 23 May 2018 that saw the celebration of 50 years of Jimi Hendrix concert in Milan at the Old Fashion (which was then called Piper) organized in collaboration with the Milan Triennale on the occasion of the Milan Arch Week 2018.
The event has had the likes of Stan Skibby & friends and Eugenio Finardi performing in the tribute to the genius of the great artist (here the link to the article and photos)

Jimi Hendrix e Woodstock : the fil rouge with Old Fashion

Jimi Hendrix is today considered the very symbol of the Woodstock Festival even though he performed last on the fourth day ( when there were no more than 10 percent of those who had participated in the previous three days )

Hendrix-Old fashion

His performance, however, remains in the history of hippie culture and Rock in general with the American national anthem Star Spangled Banner played with his electric guitar as a protest to the involvement of the United States in the Vietnam war.

The Woodstock festival


50 years ago in Bethel, a small rural town in the state of New York, from 15 till 18 August 1969 the concert par excellence was held: The Woodstock Music and Arts Fair, known simply as the Woodstock Festival.
It is considered the emblem of hippie culture and Flower Power with a symbolic charge whose notoriety continues today as the most important event in the history of rock and culture in general.
History
Woodstock was conceived as a provincial festival, but unexpectedly welcomed more than 400,000 young people and according to sources (not certain), even a million people.
Thirty-two musicians and groups, among the best known of the time, alternated on stage and the festival ended one day beyond the scheduled (it was scheduled until 17) with the performance of Jimi Hendrix – passed to history for his National Anthem U.S.A.

Peace & music (all seasoned with huge quantities of cannabis and LSD, including the famous “Orange Sunshine”) was the Leitmotiv of the festival.

Purpose of Woodstock

Regardless of the symbolism historically anchored to the hippie counterculture and the Flower Power, it should not be forgotten that Woodstock was nevertheless organized for commercial purposes.

Woodstock
The promoters of the Woodstock festival were Michael Lang, John P. Roberts, Joel Rosenman and Artie Kornfeld.

Roberts e Rosenman published an announcement in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, presenting themselves as

Challenge International, Ltd .: Young men with unlimited capital are looking for interesting opportunities, legal, investment and business proposals.

Lang e Kornfeld contacted them, and they imagined setting up an ambitious music and artistic festival.

Woodstock – therefore – should have been a commercial initiative, but it became a free entry when the organizers realized they were attracting hundreds of thousands more people than expected: about 186,000 tickets were, in fact, already bought in presale.

What not everyone knows is that the Woodstock Festival was never organized in Woodstock.

The place

The location (after some ups and downs) was Bethel, from Sullivan County, a rural town 69 kilometers southwest of Woodstock.

Elliot Tiber, the owner of the “El Monaco” motel on the White Lake in Bethel, offered to host the festival on a 15-acre estate, but when he realized that his property was too small for Woodstock, he introduced the organizers to a breeder, Max Yasgur, who agreed to rent their 600 acres (2.4 km²) for 75,000 dollars

Woodstock

(to which they must add another 25,000 as rent to neighboring owners when even these acres proved insufficient to contain the concert)

The land of Yasgur formed a natural sloping basin towards the Filippini pond to the north. The stage was built at the base of the relief, with the pond in the background.

The pond would become a place much loved by the participants, who took bath naked and become the symbol of the make love not war of the American counterculture
In the documentaries and photographs of the event the young nudes with garlands of flowers on their heads are mostly filmed in the Filippini pond.

The concert

In addition to Jimi Hendrix they performed names that are now legend of Rock (and history of music) as:
Santana, Joe Cocker, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Jefferson Airplane , Joan Baez , Janis Joplin, The Who , Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Grateful Dead, i Blood, Sweat and Tears, Sly and The Family Stone , Canned Heat ,The Band, Richie Havens, Arlo Guthrie and many more

The sound engineer was Bill Hanley, who commented:

“It went very well, I had built special loudspeaker structures in the hills, and I had sixteen loudspeakers on a square platform, climbing up the hillside on 21 meter towers. Everything had been set up to accommodate 150,000 to 200,000 listeners, and 500,000 came. “

Some legendary characters did not participate in the festival for various reasons (for more details on the Woodstock concert this is the link of wikipedia). Just to name a few, who refused the invitation, we remember: Beatles, Bob Dylan , i Doors, Procol Harum and Led Zeppelin

Anecdotes

  • The turnout of people in Bethel, especially young , was massive and immediate. The traffic blocked for a long time some motorways of the state of New York. The stereotype of the girl with the symbol of peace that makes the hitchhiking or the Beetle and the psychedelic VolksWagen van, are produced by that massive shift towards and from Bethel.
  • To get to the stage of the concert helicopters were organized to transport the various artists to perform (as it was also impossible to move because of the crowd that poured from everywhere)
  • The festival site had not been equipped for so many people and the health facilities were insufficient. The first aid system was partly impotent and many participants found themselves in trouble because of the climate and lack of hygiene and food.
  • Although the festival atmosphere was extraordinarily serene, there were two deaths in Woodstock: one probably caused by a heroin overdose, the other due to the accidental death of a participant sleeping in a sleeping bag in a hay field neighboring, being hit by a tractor.
  • It also seems that there were two births (in a car stopped in traffic and in a helicopter) and four spontaneous abortions.
  • Max Yasgur, who had offered his ground, spoke with amazement of how half a million people, in a situation that would have allowed fights and looting, had really created a community motivated by the ideals of peace and love.

    “If we were inspired by them” – he said – “we could overcome those adversities that are the current problems of America, in the hope of a brighter and more peaceful future …”

And this is perhaps the most important legacy of that musical event that still remains today in the collective imagination of the people.
