    i found this site for woodstock 4. this guy owns the rights to set up the next woodstock, and he seems to actually want to make this concert way better than ever; even no radiation! i found this site about a year ago, and since then, he has gotten little response and no sponsorship for the whole gig. if you're interested in giving him any suggestions or if you're the CEO of Pepsi, you can go here and help him out. i'd really like to go to another woodstock, despite the radiation. he wants to do it in canada.

    and he has a whole list of the bands he wants to play the stage, and i promise you that one of your favorites is on there. mine are :hyper:

    I think after the destruction of the last one they are a littel sceptical of doing it again.

    As far as I'm concerned, they got it right with Woodstock 1, should have left it at that.

    If they did it right this time, you'd want Woodstock 5. At least help the guy out. He's a great business man, and if you support his idea, he'll do it for sure. Believe me when I say that because I've known him a long time; since woodstock 99.
     
  6. The only way i would go, was if it had a very wide selection of music taste, and it wasn't corporate sponsored. The reason about corporate sponsor is i've had enough of all these tours and shows beeing such allways just another corporation wanting to make more money. Like all these companies getting onto the biill as such as green day sponsored by Nokia was part of the american idiot tour, and i think its bogus.

    why do you care if a company makes money? how does it directly affect you as an individual? no need to try to be some kind of rebel. and if you want music variety, just look at the list of bands he has posted. the ones in bold are the ones HE chose to come, should they choose.

    it doesn't have the same purpose anymore. and the last one was just a disaster.
     
  10. Since I share similar views with the other post, I thought I'd respond.

    Personally, I get tired of having commercials (in all their traditional and non traditional forms) thrown at me everytime I attend or view a leisure activity. I've got no care or concern for a company trying to turn a profit...but I don't have to be one of the people they pitch to, either. If I want to relax, a flashing Pepsi sign bleaching my retinas will not be part of my day. I've got a CD player and a room with nothing on the walls that will suit me just fine.

    While I'm on it, ticket prices are insane. I've been to festival with 30 bands playing....paid for 30 bands' worth of music, and actually had the time to see 5. The rest of the time was spent shuffling through narrow gates rubbing flesh with sweaty people I don't know. Since this experience (and a few others I've edited out) I no longer pay more than $30 to see ANYTHING (a figure that I've adjusted for inflation since I first made this decision). Don't think $30 is a lot? Consider everything else I could buy instead of the pleasure of listening to my favorite band next to some crack whore that'll do anything she can to get on stage. Going to a festival is like paying to be inconvenienced by a sea of morons...and then robbed at beer-point.

    Lastly, I don't consider myself a rebel. In fact, I am "the man". I wear a tie everyday and think of new and imaginitive ways to separate people from their money for my organization. I don't like to pay for the same experience at a concert.

    None of this is aimed at you, personally. This is just my opinion of concerts and advertisng.

    Mike

    After reading his outline and ideas, having dealt with 501c3 organizations in the past, I wouldn't say that he's a great businessman. I wouldn't trust him with any of my money, anyways. If this is the point that he's reached so far, it's an indicator that there isn't much chance he'd be able to get a single band on that list anyways. I'm not trying to be rude-it's just not a well-thoughout idea at all.

    And the whole ownership of the Woodstock name seems to go against the nature of what Woodstock was. It would be just using the name to get people to come to a big concert.

    I'm pretty sure this is a stupid idea... they'll never recreate the original in any fashion, what they end up achieving is like a one stop Ozzfest - get a few big names, a bunch of small ones going for a show. Big deal. What's with people and trying to re-create woodstock?
