Michael Lang talked about his memoir The Road to Woodstock: From the Man Behind the Legendary Festival (Ecco; June 30, 2009). A co-founder of the Woodstock Music Festival, he recounts the creation and execution of the concert including the booking of the acts, several of whom were unknown at the time, and the procurement of Max Yasgur’s farm in upstate New York that would be used as the concert venue. He talked with his co-writer, Holly George-Warren, and then they both responded to questions from members of the audience.

Michael Lang was the co-creator of the Woodstock Music and Art Fair. He is currently the head of the Michael Lang Organization, which manages live-event and film and theater productions. Mr. Lang has produced several other festivals, including the concert at the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and Woodstock '94. close
