Anyone headed to NY?

Unlike the unfortunate Burl Barer, I’m hoping someone can give me a ride out to NY state to go to this festival.  Even though I only have a one-day ticket, it’s supposed to be an all-day line-up of bands & I know of some serious party animals planning to go.  Anyone out there headed to this?

    Do you actually have this or was it downloaded from the web? It it’s yours, it’s a great historical keepsake.

    The $7 price tag was actually astronomical for the period. Even with all the best bands of the era, except for the Beatles and The Stones.
    Of course, today, it would be about $1500 with scalpers getting much more.

    NO! I did NOT download this from the ‘Net. It is my ticket & I have been in possession since the mid-70’s when it was given to me by one of my closest, life-long friends (now deceased). He was living in Montreal & working on-air at the time & bought the ticket planning to go. However, his plans changed & the ticket never got used. I didn’t preserve it as well as I should have, and the perforation finally gave out approx 25 years back. Since then, it’s been encased in a plastic sleeve. This is the FIRST time this ticket has appeared on the ‘Net & is a Puget Sound Media EXCLUSIVE. I rarely touch or handle it. It took a great deal of care to scan. The most difficult part was removing it from the glass scanner tray when done. To lift it off, the potential for damage from folding or creasing was apparent. I finally used a credit card carefully inserted under the ticket & stub to lift these off. Next year is the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, so maybe I’ll take a pic of the ticket in my hand along with my knapsack ready to hitchike to NY

    The $7.00 cost WAS pretty high, considering we were going to concerts at stadiums & auditoriums to see well-known bands for as little as $2.50/ticket
