Do you guys think a modern Woodstock could happen again in the near future? not just the music festival people actually getting along, NO violence, enjoying one another, creating a movement etc.

discuss why or why not
I smile because I have no idea whats goin on

nope, sorry

they tried it in the 90's and from what i heard it wasn't exactly peace n harmony


I would love for something like it to happen as would many others but there is just some phenomenon you cannot duplicate

nope. even if enough bands would agree to play on one huge venue for low amounts of money, and made it about music and peace, there arent enough people in the world who would avoid violence. look at what happened in 1999. rape, violence, fires... there is no way it could happen...

not only that, the music at woodstock was psychedelic music, (the same genre) so what genre would it be
im the drunkest burning star

I dunno. One thing about woodstock was that it was right in the middle of the sexual/drug revolution, so there were flower children doped the **** up everywhere, not exactly conditions for violence, and there was also the vietnam war, which was heavily protested, so most people of the demographic that the festival would cater to were the same ones protesting the war, and so not really the type who would want violence to begin with.

The only way another woodstock could work is if it was with music that didn't create moshs (how much of that is there anymore?), and there was a big social movement against violence coinciding, which, with the amount of wars, and the lessening support for them, might just happen.

I'd say it's possible, but highly unlikely right now.

Absolutely not.

People are really tense and on-edge these days, especially at a concert. There's no way anyone could hold a three day concert without anyone fighting in this day and age.

Well, when the drugs are relaxing (except of course acid), and the people all believe in peace, there probably wasn't any violence. I've heard many stories told by attendees who said there wasn't any violence, not even any scuffles.

we need a badass festival ( prefferably in georgia ) with the flaming lips, phish, the grateful dead, alvin lee, umphrey's mcgee, sts9, explosions in the sky, bob dylan, paul mccartney, zappa plays zappa, the mars volta, modest mouse, .moe, rush, slightly stoopid and santana. Oh my tree this would be the greatest.

Either your referring to the guy who got run over because he slept under a tractor, or you're thinking of the Altamont festival, where Meredith Hunter was murdered by the Hell's Angels. Other than that, by all accounts, Woodstock was really quite peaceful.

OT: I really doubt that it could happen again, because it was a certain time, and all the conditions were just so. That said however, I wish it could happen again
