Woodstock is organized in three parts:
- Origins sets the stage by describing the counterculture of the time, along with the festival’s organization, fundraising, buzz-building tactics, ticket selling and publicity, and site building.
- The Event—the heart of the project—includes a log with a run-down of each of the 32 acts, in the order they appeared, one spread to each name. Fans and politics are also featured prominently here.
- The Aftermath focuses on media coverage, follow-up festivals, Michael Wadleigh and Thelma Schoonmaker’s documentary, and Woodstock’s enduring legacy.
"...a balanced, moving and chronological pictorial of each of the 31 acts from the three and a half days.... In addition to a foreword by Martin Scorsese are numerous, firsthand accounts from concert-goers, crew members, farm hands and musicians.... The book provides political and social context that led up to the 'three days of peace & music.' Flower child or not, readers will come away with a tangible Woodstock experience." -- Publishers Weekly
"...provides candid offstage shots of performers accompanied by snippets of their observations, nearly all pithy or haunting.... Interesting tidbits and reminders abound." -- Booklist
