On this day: The Last Day of Woodstock

Monday, 18th August 2014 by

On this day 45 years ago, the Woodstock festival wrapped up on Max Yasgur's farm, with bands playing through the night, including Crosby, Still, Nash and Young. Although the crowd had peaked at around 400,000 during the weekend, when Jimi Hendrix started the final set at 8:30 in the morning, only a few tens of thousands remained in the muddy field.
