On The Way To Woodstock Review
by on July 8, 2011
Woodstock was more than just a 1969 music festival – it marked a turning point for ’60s American counter- culture and gave a generation a decent excuse to run around naked for a weekend. This beautifully realised, timeline-based app takes a look at not only the artists that performed at Woodstock, but also the background to the social changes in America in the ’50s and ’60s that lead up to the event.
You’re free to explore any part of the timeline at will, finding out more about each band that performed, their journey to the stage and, in many cases, viewing video of the actual performances.
The app is so well presented that we don’t mind that some of the content is from Wikipedia and the video comes from YouTube (so you’ll need to be online to get the most from it). It blends everything together into such a rich journey of discovery that we’ve fallen for its hippy charms. Only the occasional small technical glitch stops it getting top marks.
