WOODSTOCK MUSIC & ART FAIR - 50 ANOS








Ó as contas: 

Somando os cachês das bandas que participaram do Festival de Woodstock, em 1969, chegamos a U$150,950.00

Dizem que deu um 1 milhão de pessoas no evento. Vamos contar pela metade: 500 mil pessoas.

Vamos ser pessimistas, U$7.00 por cabeça. U$3,500,000.00

Vamos dizer que gastaram 500 paus em estrutura (sendo pessimista pra cacete!). 

O Woodstock pode ter gerado um lucro de 3 MILHÕES DE DÓLARES! EM 69! (O que hoje corresponderia a uns 15 milhões de dolares).

 Mas...



 1. WIKIPEDIA: (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodstock)

 "Tickets for the three-day event cost $18 in advance and $24 at the gate

 […]

 Ticket sales were limited to record stores in the greater New York City area, or by mail via a post office box at the Radio City Station Post Office located in Midtown Manhattan. Around 186,000 advance tickets were sold, and the organizers anticipated approximately 200,000 festival-goers would turn up." 

2. Phillip Remaker concludes on QUORA: (https://www.quora.com/How-much-money-did-Woodstock-1969-bring-in?fbclid=IwAR1Y0h9M-zTpauCP5s2jlNdoVj5kCd9JkMmGmaYaRgsrS8dOT5J4LichmY8)

"So, the ticket gross should have been 186,000 * $18 + 14,000 * $24 = ~3.68 million 1969 dollars. Ultimately about 400,000 people showed up, most of whom did not pay."


3. From 10 Things You May Not Know About Woodstock: (https://www.history.com/news/remembering-richie-havens-ten-things-you-may-not-know-about-woodstock?fbclid=IwAR0F1Bbf4vB3ql65o8H58Cth37Wk_r3dxk1CrNg5Z-GN6ZSKI7qGdCZJZWY)

"It took a decade for the Woodstock organizers to turn a profit. All told, Roberts, Rosenman, Lang and Kornfeld spent nearly $3.1 million ($15 million in today’s money) on Woodstock—and took in just $1.8 million. Roberts’ wealthy family agreed to temporarily cover the enormous costs, providing they were repaid, but it wasn’t until the early 1980s that Rosenman and Roberts were finally able to pay off the last of their debt."



Concluindo "A La Lord":

Não creio que tenha dado esse lucro todo, mas MUITO MENOS ESSE PREJU TODO!

Alguém embolsou uma grana preta "por fora", e ficou caladinho pra não ter que dividir com os produtores associados.

Muito semelhante a alguns organizadores de evento de moto aqui do Rio...




Mas o AMOR tava lá.



E HISTÓRIA foi feita.




E no fim, é isso que fica.
