According to our sources, the organizers of the Woodstock Festival were four young men: John Roberts, Joel Rosenman, Artie Kornfeld, and Mike Lang. The oldest of the four was only 27 years old at the time of the Woodstock Festival.
How many people showed up?
Robert, heir to a pharmaceutical fortune, and his friend Joel Rosenman looked for a way to invest Robert's assets in something that would generate a profit. After placing an add in the New York Times for help, they met Kornfeld and Lang. Although the original plan was to buy a recording studio and set up a retreat for rock musicians, a music festival was produced.
According to Woodstockblues, on the weekend of August 15, 1969, an estimated 500,000 people from all over America gathered for the Woodstock Music and Art Fair in Bethel, New York

Although Woodstock is remembered as a love sharing rock 'n' roll festival, there were also some crazy moments as well as tragedies.
Raymond R Mizzak, a 17 year old, was ran over by a tractor while sleeping. Another teenager died from a drug overdose. Overall, there were three deaths.
There were also rumors of children being born. Although never being proven, there was one lady who had to be air lifted to a hospital to give birth.
The organizers of Woodstock were dazed at the end of the Woodstock Festival. They didn't have time to focus on the fact that they had created the most popular music event in history, for they first had to deal with their incredible debt (over $1 million) and the 70 lawsuits that had been filed against them.

To their great relief, the film of the Woodstock Festival turned into a hit movie and the profits from the movie covered a large chunk of the debt from the Festival. By the time that everything was paid off, they were still $100,000 in debt.
