Woodstock '94 was a music festival organized to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the original Woodstock festival of 1969. It was promoted as „2 More Days of Peace and Music.” The poster used to promote the first concert was revised to feature two birds perched on a guitar fretboard, instead of the original one.
The Woodstock Music & Art Fair – informally the Woodstock Festival or simply Woodstock – was a free international music festival, billed as “An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music”.
The legendary event was held in White Lake (Bethel, Sullivan County, New York, USA) from August 15 to August 18 at Max Yasgur’s 600-acre (240 ha; 0.94 sq mi) dairy farm. It was held in Bethel, because the Wallkill banned the concerts. During the rainy weekend 32 acts were performed outdoors in front of an audience of about 500 thousand people. The huge mass drove officials to despair, and extra policemen were sent to the site added to the 800 already in duty. However there was no use for them as no form of scandal or disorder appeared partly due to the fact that drug dealing was authorized.

The concerts were scheduled for August 13 and 14, but a third day (August 12) was added. The weather was rainy, so much of the entire field had turned into mud by Saturday. The field which was originally proposed as the location for the 1969 concert: Winston Farm in Saugerties, New York, about 100 miles (160 km) north of New York City and 10 miles (16 km) from Woodstock. The crowd at Woodstock ’94 was estimated at 350,000, much more than concert organizers had planned for and by the second night many of the event policies were logistically unenforceable. One of the major issues related to restricting attendees from entering with supplies of any type of food or drinks, but the concert site was mostly enclosed by simple chain link fences. The security staff were unable to monitor the vast numbers entering while at the same time maintaining safety, security and peaceful atmosphere.
