32. Free Festival
Woodstock wasn’t supposed to be that big of an event, so when over 400,000 people showed up, no one was really prepared for the magnitude of it all. Before the festival, the organizers managed to sell 100,000 tickets which means more than 300,000 showed up without tickets.
The late change in the venue didn’t give the organizers enough time to deal with the influx of people. The audience started to arrive by the tens of thousands two days before the music festival began and walked through the gaps in the fences. The organizers eventually decided to make the concert free. And to think this all went down on a small dairy farm!
