TT T R I V I A : W O O D S T O C K

Call us stupid but we had no idea there was only ONE Woodstock festival that took place in history. We thought it was like Coachella in that it played out every year. We actually feel like we have missed out on the best party that this world ever mustered up. Gay. Anyways here's a little Woodstock trivia for you that's pretty cool.

Woodstock was held at a dairy farm in the town of Bethel, New York, 1969. Yeah you heard us, a dairy farm. Those cows must of had a blast. We bet a serious game of cow-tipping took place too. It was a rainy weekend that had 32 acts perform outdoors in front of 500,000 concert-goers. It's pretty much regarded as the raddest and most pivotal moment in popular music history. Shiiiiiiiit. Half a million people? That's a lot of hippies and a lot of "I love you man's".

The Beatles turned down the Woodstock promoters. There's a widespread rumour that John Lennon said that the Beatles would not play unless there was also a spot at the festival for his freaking girlfriend. Yoko Ono's Plastic Ono Band. The organsisers banded together and decided to yell "SHUTDOWWWWWN" to Lennon and his missus...We're giving Lennon a "TT Douchebag Award" for this effort. (But we still love you John, we think your rad, group hug)

On a lighter note, if anyone has a dairy farm and would like to start thinking of using it as a new festival base for half a million us, pronto.....We really think this could work.

Peace to all you cool kids.
