19. A Muddy Business
The outdoor music festival saw lots of wet weather between the bright sunshine. Not only did this cause technical delays, but also quite a messy business as seen in this amazing photograph. This couple is seen performing a bit of team work twisting out the water of their soaked blanket. We can imagine no one got much sleeping done at Woodstock.
The rain caused lots of mud baths and dirt, but that didn’t stop the 32 acts from performing for the tremendously eager audience. Come rain or shine, the crowd didn’t seem to mind the mud at all. Lots of hippies actually threw off their shoes and soaked their feet in the dirt. Some, however, did come prepared with raincoats, umbrellas, and plastic sheets.
