Stardust: Stardust 1969: August 1969

Private Home, Hagerstown, MD.


In August 1969, group of young people, mostly students, gathered at the home of two art professors for a pre-Woodstock party. When the party was over, many of them made an eight-hour drive to Bethel, New York, to attend the Woodstock Music Festival, August 15-18 at Max Yasgur's farm. Before the night was over, some of them started a band called The Vine. Some of them burned their draft notices and fled to Canada. One of them changed his name, and another was "reborn." All of them had experiences they will never forget.
