Woodstock 50 Is Officially Canceled After Multiple Complications Leading Up to the Concert

By

Sad news for the music community — Woodstock 50 is officially canceled. 

The music festival was set to celebrate their 50th anniversary after their original debut in 1969. After months of fighting to keep Woodstock alive, headliners began to drop out. Because we can’t have a music festival without any music, co-founder Michael Lang expressed there just wasn’t enough time. 

Why was Woodstock 50 canceled? 

Apart from their musical acts dropping like flies, the Woodstock 50 organizers had trouble finding a venue. Not being able to secure their OG Bethel Woods site, the organizers tried to secure a venue close by. With their gathering of usually 150,000 people each year, the struggle to find a venue started looking slim to none.
