I would've gone to Woodstock, for sure! I mean I'd heard of the name ever since I was a kid and was just getting into music.

On the other hand, I don't even know about this Monterey festival you talk about.

woodstock, because it happened on my birthday. (gee i was only -14 then!) so i'm a bit biased.

but seriously, i guess between the two i'll say monterey, even though the who played.

Woodstock -- if only for the atmosphere

I can't decide based on the music... but I would have loved Woodstock for the people

I'm tempted to ask a mod to add some other festivals such as Live Aid...

But I won't.

Monterey, for sure.

It was the model for every other music festival that followed (Woodstock, Coachella, Glastonberry, etc.).

First major appearance for Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Otis Redding.

When I was young, I remember listening to records of the performances with my dad. It's good stuff.

I'm sure I never post in here.

Monterey.....Otis Redding could have been the only act and it would be infinitely worth it.
