    • Lorelai: Charge them a fortune, gouge them on bottled water, have those really little disgusting bathrooms. It'll be like our own Woodstock.

      The original Woodstock in 1969 started out as a for profit concert designed for 50,000 people. However, between 400,000 and 500,000 people showed up for the 3 day concert and it soon turned into one of the largest free concerts in the world. It became a symbol of the anti-war movement and many of the popular folk singers at that time performed there. In 1999, the 30 year anniversary of Woodstock, music promoters decided to captialize on the anniversary and had their own 3 day concert. The ticket prices were $150 for the three day concert and people were not allowed to bring in their own food or water. Although there were public water fountains, many of these were vandalized or inaccessible due to people guarding them. Poor sanitation, lack of water and high heat lead to violence, looting and sexual assault.
