Woodstock Founder Announces 50th Anniversary Festival Coming This Summer
While “Woodstock ’99 was just a musical experience with no social significance,” co-creator Michael Lang says the 50th anniversary festival will “go back to our roots and our original intent.”
Additionally, Lang confirmed to Rolling Stone that a three-day “multi-generational” festival is coming this summer (August 16-18) to honor the 50th year of the original event.
Furthermore, Lang confirms that over 50 performers have confirmed for the Watkins Glen, New York event.
In addition, he adds that official details on the lineup will arrive once tickets go on sale in February.
However, “It’ll be an eclectic bill. It’ll be hip-hop and rock and some pop and some of the legacy bands from the original festival. Having contemporary artists interpret that music would be a really interesting and exciting idea. We’re also looking for unique collaborations, maybe some reunions and a lot of new and up-and-coming talent.”
