  1. screw woodstock ima hop and go over to edc or coachella bad line up in my opinion

  2. Most artist dont even have talent today. They are usually talentless and get hired based on looks or how they can reel the kids in. Oh or mommy and daddy get them into the business.

  3. I guarantee *Courtney Hadwin* will knock the socks off everyone, including the purists!

  4. Stop trying to bring Woodstock back. It will never be recreated or duplicated💯💯💯

  5. Courtney Hadwin alone is just enough to make this Woodstock great and memorable
