After the Woodstock festival The organizers of Woodstock were dazed at the tip of the festival. They did not have time to target the very fact that that they had created the foremost in style music event in history, for they initial had to cope with their unimaginable debt (over $1 million) and also the seventy lawsuits that had been filed against them. To their nice relief, the film of the Woodstock festival was successful movie and also the profits from the movie coated an outsized chunk of the debt from the festival. By the time that everything was paid off, they were still $100,000 in debt.
