If things had gone according to plan, people would have been able to buy tickets to the 50th anniversary Woodstock Festival in Watkins Glen New York this August 16-18. Ain’t gonna happen though.
There have been whispers of financial and logistical issues since the event was announced some months ago. Even though the full line-up has been announced, problems persist.
Hits Daily Double quotes festival talent buyer Danny Wimmer Presents: “There is currently a hold on the Woodstock 50 on-sale date. We are waiting on an official press statement from Woodstock 50 regarding updated announce, ticket pricing, and overall festival information. We will get this information to you as soon as we receive it.”
So what to the Woodstock people say? They gave this statement to Variety: “Woodstock is a phenomenon that for fifty years has drawn attention to its principles and also the rumors that can be attached to that attention. Just more rumors.”
But we’ll see, won’t we?
UPDATE: Maybe it has something to do with permits. Or maybe not.
