Almost Played: Joni Mitchell was scheduled to perform, but her manager pulled her to do “The Dick Cavett Show.” Mitchell’s then-boyfriend Graham Nash’s account of the event inspired her to write the song “Woodstock,” later rerecorded and made a hit by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

Also Played: Some acts were lesser known than others. Among them, Tim Hardin, Quill, The Incredible String Band and Bert Sommer, who was left off the Woodstock memorial plaque.
