Trivia: Wood Stock
- Academy Award: The movie won the Best Documentary Feature laurel in 1970.
- Demand Overload: Woodstock was provisioned for less than 50,000, but they sold 100,000 tickets. Then 400,000 more people showed up. The promoters begged the locals to make sandwiches so the concertgoers wouldn't starve and the U.S. National Guard airlifted food in.
- Doing It for the Art: The original '69 festival stuck to it's message of peace and love, with cooperation from locals and the American armed forced, all of whom pitched in when the festival was oversold. The crowd famously made light of the many shortcomings, such as late acts and bad weather, and the bands all sang songs of change and optimism, if they didn't outright rock!
- Money, Dear Boy: Unlike the original, however, Woodstock '99 was sponsored by banks and web services, a big reason everything was infamously overpriced.
- What Could Have Been: Acts who missed, declined or were unable to perform at the first Woodstock when the offer was made include Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, John Lennon, The Moody Blues, The Byrds, Tommy James And The Shondells, Spirit, Jethro Tull, The Beach Boys, Joni Mitchell, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Bob Dylan and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Roy Rogers was to have concluded the festival by singing "Happy Trails", but declined.
