VH1, History Bring Viewers Back To Woodstock

Forty years after the seminal outdoor concert festival, History and VH1 Rock Docs will bring viewers back to the garden.

The two networks have collaborated on a two-hour documentary Woodstock: Now & Then that will premiere on Aug. 14 at 9 p.m., with a simulcast o VH1 and VH1 Classic and then debut on History on Aug. 17 at 8 p.m.
Directed and produced by two-time Academy Award winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple and executive produced by Michael Lang, the original festival organizer, the film examines Woodstock from the perspectives of  the musicians who took the stage, the fans who gathered in mass,  the concert promoters who risked everything and the countless others whose unique experiences help paint a lasting tapestry of three days of peace, love and music on Aug. 15-18, 1969. on Max Yasgur's farm in Bethel, N.Y..
