Volkswagen pitched in to help make 'The Woodstock Bus' a reality.

The Volkswagen Light Bus is nearly as synonymous with the Woodstock music festival as hippies, epic performances, and rain.

Covered in illustrations of Egyptian mythology, fire, the American flag, a snake, and sunrise among others, the bus is instantly identifiable both as a Volkswagen and from the pinnacle time of an era some 50 years ago.

“The Woodstock Bus” is a new documentary film that follows the story of friends and fans working together to find the original Light Bus, which was painted by Dr. Bob Hieronimus. When the original Light Bus cannot be found, Hieronimus and Canadian filmmaker John Wesley Chisholm start a Kickstarter fund to construct a replica.

To complete funding of the campaign, Volkswagen made a donation, helping to bring the project to fruition.

“The Woodstock Bus” is available on CuriosityStream. Watch a preview of the film below.
