This reunion concert faced organizational difficulties, much like the original Woodstock, though on a far smaller scale. On Friday the 7th, the day before the show, over 1000 young people showed up and camped out at the site; prompting complaints from neighbours. The next day there was a delay in opening the venue gates, due to security concerns by the concert-promoter; which almost resulted in a revocation of the permit and cancellation of the show by local officials.
