An email alerting agents to the postponement of Woodstock 50’s ticket on-sale has started rumors that the 100,000-person anniversary concert will be canceled.
However founder Michael Lang insists that, in fact, they are merely “rumors,” saying in part: “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,” Lang, one of the co-founders of the original 1969 event in Bethel Woods, New York, said in a statement to Billboard, adding that fears of its demise were “just more rumors.”
An email was sent to agents representing acts at the concert in Watkins Glen, New York, explaining, “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.”
Tickets for the three-day event with headliners The Killers, Dead and Co, Imagine Dragons and Jay-Z and were supposed to go on sale Monday (April 22) in honor of Earth Day. No new date has been announced.
