Could Quincy Be Woodstock 2?

Today marks the 43rd anniversary of  the first Woodstock Music Festival which was held in Bethel, New York on farm property owned by Max Yasgur.  The three day festival featured 24 bands and drew a crowd of more than  400-thousand people. It features acts like The Who, Janis Joplin, Credence Clearwater Revival, Crosby-Stills-Nash & Young, Canned Heat, Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, Joe Cocker, Sly & The Family Stone and others.

Woodstock was a simple concept.  Find a field and hook up electricity to it and book a few bands.  Times have definitely changed.  We were talking about Woodstock on the air this morning and the thought came to my mind about holding a similar event around here.  We are centrally located in the country, we definitely have farm fields and electricity so what more do we need? Oh yeah! MONEY.

To pull off an event like that would be difficult. Times are different. Costs are outrageous and liability issues reign supreme. It’s unfortunate because a Woodstock type event would be a memorable one for all to attend.

For those who were at Woodstock, you may have seen a one-of-a-kind event and that’s too bad for those of us who weren’t there to experience it.
