Plans For 50th-Anniversary Woodstock Festival Have Been Confirmed
The rumors have been confirmed! Woodstock co-creator Michael Lang has told Rolling Stone that a three-day festival honoring the 50th anniversary of the original Woodstock is in the works. The event will take place in Watkins Glen, New York—150 miles away from the original site of Bethel, New York— on August 16th-18th.
The lineup is being kept underwraps until tickets go on sale this February, but Lang says that it will be an "eclectic bill" with bands both old and new, and tribute performances to the original Woodstock '69 performers.
We have gone ahead and compiled a few videos of original Woodstock '69 performances below. So sit back, relax, and get ready to be taken back to the "three days of peace and music." ☮️
