    • A concert ticket to the greatest concert of all time sold for $6.00 per day in advance.
      *No money, not much anyway, was received that day "at the door". Two weeks before the festival, after months of work, they were informed by the town fathers they couldn't have the festival at the original site. So they had 2 weeks to do an impossible job, getting another site ready. The fences weren't even up. And the utter chaos was not expected. Three times the amount of people! So early on the first day, they got on the loud speakers and told the kids that were swarming in that it was a FREE concert. It took the promoter 10 years to pay off debts incurred that weekend, but he did it!
      In 2009 this would cost $140.00 each day, or $420.00 for the
      3 day event
