We kept hearing a buzz that it might happen. WOODSTOCK 50th Anniversary. I've heard Foo Fighters and Pearl Jam's names come up...
Well Rolling Stone just confirmed it-
Original Woodstock organizer Michael Lang has confirmed that the legendary festival will return this summer in celebration of its 50th anniversary, Rolling Stone reports. The three day festival will be held in Watkins Glen, New York on August 16-18. Lang is keeping the lineup mum until tickets go on sale in February, but he promises concert goers can expect a lineup where “hip-hop and rock and some pop and some of the legacy bands from the original festival” will be represented. So far, he says 40 acts have been booked across three stages.
I went to the original site of Woodstock a few years back (very cool museum there too) and let me tell you, there is something magical in that land. There's so much more to this festival that we were never told about. The stories are legendary. So glad to hear the original organizer is behind this.
