Many Groups such as Tommy James and the Shondels and Paul Revere and the Raiders turned down to play in this concert which was explained as a concert in upstate New York on a farm which did not seem inviting to many groups. Other groups who did decide to attend had to be flyed in by helicopter due to the road ways were totally not passable . Many groups got there start from this festival.

Do to the crowds it turned out no tickets were used.
The Woodstock concert never changed it name but it did not take place in upstate New York town of Woodstock but instead it took place at the upstate New York town of Bethel. The town of Woodstock backed out of the concert with only thirty days before the concert . This gave the concert organizers a very short time to find a place and hen advertise the new location.
