Last weekend marked the fortieth anniversary of the Woodstock Music and Art Fair, as well as the fourteenth anniversary of Przystanek Woodstock. The three-day festival took place on the Polish border with Germany, at Kostrzyn nad Odra: the crowd was huge, dirty, and loud; the ground turned to a wasteland of mud and trash; the sex was rampant and free. Overall, it was a smashing success, and the list of B-artists wowed the crowd (and those watching on TV/the Internet.)
Creating a muddy pit.
Quite a lot of people jumping around in the mud.
Others prefer to relax and wallow in the filth.

The crowd helps 'push' the bus along.
They push even in chairs.
One concert-goer wears a three-bonged hat.

I'll address the issue of the performers next post.
