‘Magical’ Woodstock: The town that lent the festival its name

The town of Woodstock -- a municipality 107 miles (172 kilometers) north of New York City -- didn’t actually host the festival carrying its name, but rubbing shoulders with greats like Hendrix was standard fare.

The photo is only one of hundreds made by photographer Mark Goff who, at the time, worked for an underground newspaper in Milwaukee, Wis. Some were published, but the negatives were filed away at his Milwaukee home and barely mentioned as Goff raised two daughters, changed careers and, last November, died of cancer. Dozens of Goff's Woodstock shots are being displayed 50 years later. (Mark Goff Photography, Leah Demarco/Allison Goff via AP)(AP)

Troubled Woodstock 50 celebration officially canceled

After it could not secure a site in upstate New York, where the original Woodstock took place, organizers had vowed the show would go on at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland northeast of the US capitol. But that move saw artists including Jay-Z and Miley Cyrus backing out of the August 16-18 weekend.
