Janis Joplin's FBI File

The images below are from Janis Joplin's FBI file (available from the FBI "vault" here). Apparently a confidential informant back in the day "tipped off" an FBI agent that a major 3-day festival had recently occurred at Woodstock...

God only knows how Woodstock still poses such a threat to national security that after 40 years they still have to black out a majority of the memo. But out the portion that hasn't been redacted, we get a nice tidbit of dry bureaucratic humor: "the main entertainment (if that is the correct word)...":
