A music festival to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Woodstock is officially happening! The “Woodstock 50” event will take place Aug. 16-18 in Watkins Glen in Upstate New York.
Michael Lang, one of the founders of the original Woodstock said “The original festival in ’69 was a reaction by the youth of the time to the causes we felt compelled to fight for – civil rights, women’s rights, and the antiwar movement, and it gave way to our mission to share peace, love and music. Today, we’re experiencing similar disconnects in our country, and one thing we’ve learned is that music has the power to bring people together. So, it’s time to bring the Woodstock spirit back, get involved and make our voices heard.”
The lineup is said to be announced in the coming weeks.
