Why was Woodstock called Woodstock?

I caught bits and pieces of a PBS show on Woodstock last night. Held on some guys dairy farm (not called Woodstock). It was in the town of Bethel (White Lake). They had to move it but the original location wasn't Woodstock either.

5. Apparently, the investment company that originally backed it

was called Woodstock Ventures.

Who knew?


A hippy festival backed by investment bankers?
