We think about Woodstock as people living a wild hippy lifestyle, but nearly everyone there would have been back at work on the Monday, and their co-workers would be like "Hey Barbara. Did you get up to anything this weekend?"

Idk tbh I’ve seen the documentary on Woodstock (which was released in theaters the following year). It includes a girl there being interviewed on how her parents had disowned her because she’d run away from home to join a caravan of hippie guys. It shows people walking around just naked, some couples with their little children. People bathing in a lake (as usual for them). Everyone high out of their minds rambling philosophical deep thoughts to the camera I have no clue what they were trying to say.

Most people you see in that documentary are rock and roll stars, but they also don't account for most of the people there that weekend.

They were attendees being filmed and interviewed. Not the performers. Yes we see the music performances but much of the movie is spent on the attendees.
