Where women were allowed to be free and where men were men but also looked a bit like women, it also became the most legendary festival in music history. Not even 2009's V Festival could compete with that.

Not one of the over half-a-million young people that ran riot in White Lake, New York that week could've known that they would be a part of history.

Luckily hindsight's a magical thing and Reel Art Press are releasing Woodstock, a brilliant 192-page book jam packed with iconic pictures by the almost-equally-iconic Baron Wolman, Rolling Stone magazine's first ever photographer, to mark the festival's 45th anniversary.

Some of the photos will also be exhibited at Shoreditch's Forge & Co gallery. Watch the Q&A with Michael Lang and Baron Wolman here.

Cool, right?

Baron Wolman's book Woodstock is available to pre-order now.

The Woodstock exhibition will run from 27th June until 18th July at Forge & Co, London, E1.
