Essay Topic

This is my thesis: Woodstock was not just simply one of the most legendary music festivals to occur in history but also changed the dynamics of large music festivals forevermore. Woodstock set the stage for concerts to not only be about listening to the music but also to push the limits of being under the influence of whatever alcohol or drug of choice. In 1969, the Woodstock Festival gave recognition to a counterculture which “tried to ignore social and cultural norms, proposing instead a new moral foundation for American life”(Schultz, 469). This new American life will be recognized throughout my essay as I will progress into our modern society and the concert/drug culture that precedes with it.
