The hippie movement didn’t just disappear, it just went mainstream. The sixties came and went, the drama of the cold war, Nixon, all of it, just evaporated into the disco filled era of the eighties. The hippies however, managed to have enough of an impact on our culture that you can now see it everywhere. Coachella music festival for instance, is essentially Woodstock all over again. I didn’t go this year, but my girlfriend did, and I have been to enough festivals to have a general idea of what it was like. It may not have been as much of a free for all as Woodstock was in the sixties, but it was damn close. The picture above definitely captures this, as several girls dance in what outfits you could easily imagine seeing as hippie garb back then.
