Music, 40 years after Woodstock
To finance a recording studio, 4 young music producers decided in August 1969 to organize a festival for peace in the world. 60 000 people maximum were expected. The result: more than 1 million people hit the road to Bethel (US State New York). 500 000 of them could pretend at the end to have attended the biggest rock music event of the 20 century.
Woodstock was celebrating its 40 anniversary in August and therefore, we decided to make music to our subject of the month.
How much music do you find on Ciao?
Devotees of Beethoven or Schubert just need to visit our section for classic. From the modernity on, music changed a lot. The several music styles nowadays show that tones, sound and voice can be mixed in endless ways. From the sixties on, Rock music gave birth to several styles like Pop, Rock, Country or Hip Hop. And the ones who still want to know which music was played in the time before, during and after Woodstock besides rock music, just need to have a look in the section for Oldies. You won't miss the great variety of soundtracks on our website and if it’s about dancing, we recommend you the Electronic, Disco & Dance, House or Techno sections.
Woodstock goes also in the history as the prime father of summer festivals and concerts. You will find helpful reviews about similar events in ciao café, in the section concert, festivals and gigs.
There won’t be a second Woodstock. But for sure music events and festivals which will also mark the spirit of our time.
