The hip movement started in San Francisco a couple of years earlier in the Haight Ashbury and the Summer of Love had spread across the nation. There were now millions of hip people with 400,000 of them converging on Woodstock. Woodstock was a statement to the world, "humanity had evolved", coming together through Peace, Love and Spirituality. An event whose original intent was to make money became the largest FREE event in history. The hip movement had come of age and was recognized by the world. The principles of love swept the country and we had become the `Woodstock Nation". Hundreds of San Francisco stars and musical luminaries will perform at this event to commemorate the original principles of Peace, Love and Spirituality. The Woodstock 40th will begin with a blessing by the American Indigenous People and several Beat Generation poets. There will be many speakers from the Peace Movement, the Free Speech Movement and the Anti-War Movement along with many of the acts who originally performed at Woodstock (to be announced). There will also be a "Green Vendor Village" with merchandise highlighting the emerging Green Movement.
