Woodstock 50 Cancelled 2019

Woodstock 50 has been cancelled. The 50th anniversary celebration of the world famous 1969 music festival was set to take place this summer, August 16th-18th in Watkins Glen, NY.

“Despite our tremendous investment of time, effort and commitment, we don’t believe the production of the festival can be executed as an event worthy of the Woodstock Brand name while also ensuring the health and safety of the artists, partners and attendees,” a statement from Woodstock organizers reads. “As difficult as it is, we believe this is the most prudent decision for all parties involved.”

As we previously reported, headliners at the now cancelled three-day event included The Killers, Dead & Co., Imagine Dragons, and Jay-Z. Other artists like Miley Cyrus, Chance the Rapper, The Lumineers, and veteran musicians from the original 1969 festival like John Fogerty and David Crosby were also on the roster.

Festival reps say concerns about capacity, site readiness, and permitting issues led to the decision to cancel the event.
