Folk festival made Woodfordia Australia’s 67th-biggest town

STRETCHED out in a straight line the drink tickets sold at Woodford Folk Festival's 17 bars would have stretched for 20km according to a statistical breakdown of weird and wonderful numbers emerging from the wash-up of the record-breaking six-day 30th annual event.

Then there's the toilet paper, all 26,952 rolls used to wipe the 126,966 bottoms that found their way to a music festival featuring 405 acts with 268 performers delivering 1945 sessions of entertainment on 25 stages.

Oh, and for the more anal, that's 10.78 million individual sheets of toilet paper .... well 10,780,800 to be exact, flushed away by eight megalitres of waste water.

Festival patrons also used 5.795 million litres of potable water over the course of the event.

BY THE NUMBERS

  • The festival village once erected became the 67th largest town in Australia, serviced by a team of 2896 volunteers from 20 nations.
  • They were sustained by 24kgs of coffee sweetened by 38kg of sugar.
  • There was 11km of fencing erected to define the festival's borders. It took eight days to pull down.
