Five days before the festival, cars began lining the roads outside of Bethel, New York, where the festival was being held. The local residents were quite literally trapped in their own houses, unable to use the roads. Thousands of cars were abandoned, as the festival-goers decided to walk the rest of the way, rather than sit in the dead lock. Legend has it that the line of cars ran over 20 km from the farm and performers had to be flown in, via helicopter. The fences that had been built around the festival had been cut the night before - there was no point in trying to collect tickets and money from a crowd of over half a million people- Woodstock was declared a free event.
