    Explanation
    In 1969, the iconic music festival Woodstock attracted a massive crowd of 500,000 people. However, before the performance of Jimi Hendrix, one of the most influential rockstars of all time, the numbers dwindled down to below 300,000. This suggests that many people left the festival before Hendrix's performance, possibly due to fatigue, other commitments, or simply not being interested in seeing other artists. Jimi Hendrix's performance at Woodstock is widely regarded as one of the most memorable and iconic moments in music history.
