This month marks the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, the famed music festival held from August 15–18, 1969 in Bethel, New York. More than 400,000 people attended this now-legendary festival, which featured musical acts like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Sly and the Family Stone, The Who, and Grateful Dead.

In celebration of this anniversary — and all things peace and music — here are just a few of our favorite rock ‘n roll-inspired MUTTS comic strips.
