What is your memory of 1969

It was billed as the “ An Aquarian Exposition: 3 days of Peace & Music”, held at a dairy farm in the town of Bethel, New York, from August 15 to August 18, 1969. It is regarded as the post pivotal moments in popular music history and was listed among Rolling Stone’s 50 Moments That changed the history of Rock and Roll. It was called “Woodstock” and Half a million people attended it. The most memorable feeling from the event was the sense of social harmony amongst the overwhelming mass of people. Two births and two deaths were reported at Woodstock and on the opening day Spiritual master Swami Satchidananda gave invocation for the festival and Pandit Ravi Shankar sent the attendants into euphoria

Most of all the concert was free :))

Now how about this ! a British Indie band named ‘Cornershop’ does a track titled “Free Love ’69” with a Psychedelic Punjabi folk vibe. Cornershop brings a new meaning to that special year and gives us a sense of calm knowing that hope is more prevalent today and the Aquarian Age is upon us.
