they wouldn't do 3 shows there! so whoever told you that is full of shit!
Thanks for the insights. Almost mailed for that show just because the venue seemed fairly, shall we say unusual, but I really don't like the sounds of limited access and police hassles. Saw the other woodstock in 94, at Bethel (Max's farm) had a good time back then, but that was pretty low key and more underground. They built an amphitheater up there now, is that correct? And is it on the site of Yasgers farm or just close by? Baked potatoes have questions
Bethel Woods is on the same grounds as the old Yasgers farm. It is not in the exact location but it is close. Woodstock 94 was not held in Bethel it was in held in Saugerties NY and it was far from low key. I was there ,Woodstock 99 was in Rome NY and we all know how that worked out I was also there. The problems with 94 & 99 were the greed factor. When your charging $ 5.00 for warter in the middle of the summer and the port o johns turn into cesspools your going to have problems. Treat people like animals they are going to act like animals!!!
When they did in the 40th Woodstock Anniversary show in Bethel Woods it was awsome. Big Brother opened the show and was the best band of the day. The grounds and venue are one of the nicest around. They don't need 3 Phish shows there they need 3 FURTHUR shows there.
They had one at the same time in 94, you probably didn't hear about it b/c pepsi didnt sponsor it! But Sid Bernstein and Richie Havens organized it, very cool and low key for sure
