Woodstock co-founder Michael Lang confirms 50th Anniversary event

The man behind the Woodstock festival has confirmed reports he’s planning a 50th anniversary bash miles away from the site of the 1969 event.

 

Michael Lang, the co-founder of the Woodstock Music & Art Festival, will be staging a “multi-generational” weekend concert in August (19) in Watkins Glen, New York.

Lang tells Rolling Stone magazine he will be booking more than 40 acts for the event, adding, “It’ll be an eclectic bill. It’ll be hip-hop and rock and some pop and some of the legacy bands from the original festival.”

The full line-up will be revealed next month (Feb19), but don’t expect to find The Who on it – Roger Daltrey has already turned up his nose at the anniversary, insisting it’s not for him.
