Woodstock 50 Cancelled

Financial investor pulls funding

A financial investor in the Woodstock 50 festival announced Monday that it was pulling its funding from the event which was set to take place Aug. 16-18 in Watkins Glen, N.Y.

“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,” Amplifi, Dentsu Aegis Network’s media investment arm, said in a statement.

There have been some bumps in the road like tickets were supposed to go on sale but that was postponed and no rescheduled date was announced.

Over 80 artists were scheduled to perform at the anniversary event including the Killers, John Fogerty, Miley Cyrus, Santana, Imagine Dragons, Robert Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters, The Black Keys, Chance the Rapper and Janelle Monae.
