rich r Woodstock 99 ..the Media and the Truth (36) RE: Woodstock 99 ..the Media and the Truth 27 Jul 99


The behavior of a few miscreants and jerks cannot be condoned. I saw an interview on TV of a New York DJ who was at the affair who said that a good portion of the security people hired for the event, packed it in, got on a bus and left while the last two groups were still playing. You expect to pay outrageous prices at an event of that sort. Same thing happens at Disney Land or wherever. I think is is unconscionable for organizers to have daylong venues without providing a source of free drinking water. Even cattle at the stock yard get that. I don't know what the situation was at WoodTick 99. My son went to OzFest in western Wisconsin this year which was only one 12 hour day. He said he spent about $30 on beverages and didn't eat. The venue guards wouldn't let them bring anything in. He even had to thow away the disposable camera he had bought to take a few snapshots (He could have taken it back to the car, but would have had to get back in the end of the line). I've never understood why these high priced performers are so obsessed that some kids are going to take fuzzy pictures from too far away. I don't care to go to these type of events (In honesty I should qualify that, I went to a 26,000 person Garth Brooks concert in the local dome a couple years ago, but the tickets were only $20). AT the next WoodsTick, if there is one, the vendors will have to charge more to pay for their burned trailers and higher insurance rates. It's doubtfull many of the rabble minority at this event will ever be held acountable.
