Woodstock 50 Cancelled! After months of venue changes, legal battles, financial disagreements, and invalid contracts, Woodstock 50 has finally been cancelled.
According to Variety, vendors and stakeholders were notified on Wednesday, July 31st that plans for the 50th anniversary celebration would not be moving forward.
“We are saddened that a series of unforeseen setbacks has made it impossible to put on the festival we imagined with the great lineup we had booked and the social engagement we were anticipating,” Woodstock co-founder Michael Lang explains in a statement.
The cancellation comes less than a week after the event once again changed venues, this time away from Upstate New York entirely and into Maryland at the Merriweather Post Pavilion.
