In part one of our series on Woodstock at 50, we document the troubled history of Woodstock Enterprises and its failure to capitalize on its historic brand. The failure of Woodstock 50 is hardcoded in the organization's past.
We present interviews with three of the festival's most uncompromising voices. Debby Friday explores feminine aggression through her self-styled blistering Bitchpunk. Korea Town Acid is a classically-trained pianist who creates intricate, eclectic beats. Layia combines field recordings, instrumentation, and live vocals in dense ambient collages.
