On the 50th anniversary of the iconic rock fest, DW visits Woodstock, where 'peace, love, and rock and roll' never gets old.
After 50 years, the legendary festival is still considered a milestone of the 1960s peace movement. But it wasn't all flowers and love. DW looks at some of Woodstock's downfalls, both in 1969 and at revival festivals.
Woodstock 50 was scheduled to take place for three days in mid-August. Just days before the event, organizers have called off the festival planned to commemorate the legendary 1969 celebration of peace, love and music.
At the spot where the legendary festival took place 50 years ago, there's now a museum and music conference center chronicling and celebrating the history of Woodstock. But does it do justice to the historic events?
The spectator has never been closer: "Apollo 11," a documentary marking the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, offers an overwhelming experience. Todd Miller's film is based on an unconventional cinematic concept.
