Re: Woodstock 2019

Bands and line-up supposedly will be announced in February when the tickets go on sale. Apparently, quite a few optimistic music fans have already booked hotels & lodgings in and around the Watkins Glen proposed site; so it might get a bit tight for "breakfast in bed for 400,000.."

There's also word of an unofficial 50th anniversary celebration at Bethel Wood, Sullivan County.

I think that field won’t be ADA compliant. Walkers will be tough in the mud.
The kids nowadays won’t listen to thatmusic.
Good luck to the promoters, but there could never be a repeat.

Re: Woodstock 2019

According to the rumour mill, original Woodstock vertern Carlos Santana has said will play at the Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, near the original Woodstock site, on Aug. 16-18, 2019 rather than the official Watkins Glen site festival.

The Bethel Woods event, thanks to the booking power of Live Nation, has a long list of rumoured artists that have been approached including Daft Punk, Bruce Springsteen, Eminem, Ariana Grande, Coldplay, Phish, The Weekend, Elton John, Bon Jovi, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Pink, Zac Brown Band, Mumford & Sons, and The Chainsmokers.

However, one of the other original survivors, The Who, have been ruled out according to a statement by Roger Daltrey. Incidentally, The Who are touring  in 2019, including a date in Bufffalo NY (in May), with an orchestra, touring a later realease of their first new album in 13 years... However, Daltrey has dropped heavy hints that at 75, this could very well be his last (US) tour.

Unfortunately the demographic of the original Woodstock may be harder to get to go to a huge festival.I think to get the numbers you have to appeal to a younger audience

From Celebrity Access Encore:-

WATKINS GLEN, NY (CelebrityAccess) — With Woodstock 50 scheduled to take place in just six months, the event’s organizers have still not released an initial lineup for the event.
Woodstock 50, intended to mark the 50th anniversary of original Woodstock Music & Arts Festival, is scheduled to take place from 16-18 in Watkins Glen in Upstate New York a few miles from the original festival grounds.
Since the festival was first announced in January, few additional details about the event have come to light, leading to speculation about the event’s financial stability. According to a report in music news site Hits Daily Double, the delay in updates about the festival are due to “issues regarding the raising of money and venue capacity.”


According to HDD, the unofficial lineup for Woodstock 50 includes Dead & Co., The Killers, Miley Cyrus, Santana, The Black Keys, Chance the Rapper, Jay-Z, Imagine Dragons and Halsey but per HDD, only a few of the acts have received their full guarantees. Santana was also announced for a commemorative concert at Bethel Woods during Woodstock weekend.
The festival is being produced by Woodstock Ventures, formed via a partnership between three of the original Woodstock producers, Michael Lang, Joel Rosenman, and John Roberts’ family, with financial backing from Dentsu Aegis Network, a division of the Japanese advertising giant Dentsu, which will also assist with marketing and sponsorship via affiliated agencies.
Lang told the New York Times in January that he envisioned a large-scale event and anticipates selling 100,000 three-day passes, with most attendees camping on site. At the time, he declined to discuss the budget for the festival, but told the Times: “We paid $135,000 for all of our talent in 1969. Times have changed.”
