1. The First Woodstock had over 400,000 People in Attendance Despite Organizers Estimating a Crowd Half That Size.
Woodstock was also intended to be a for-profit event, only becoming free after organizers realized they couldn’t control the number of people that actually showed up. Contrary to popular belief, however, Jimi Hendrix‘s performance only had a tenth of the crowd in attendance. By the time he performed on Monday morning, most people had already left or had only stayed to see him.
