Here we go again, the Woodstock 50 festival has revealed that there are more in the way of more ongoing issues with the announcement yesterday that the festival has now lost its venue.
It was all set for the festival to go-ahead at a New York racetrack called Watkins Glen International. That apparently is no longer the case, the venue issued a statement stating that this is now no longer happening.
The statement said the following: “Watkins Glen International terminated the site license for Woodstock pursuant to provisions of the contract. As such, WGI will not be hosting the Woodstock 50 Festival.”
The Woodstock 50 festival has been in the news over the months for all the wrong reasons. It was in April that the festival’s funding partner Dentsu Aegis Network withdrew from the event and announced the cancellation of Woodstock 50.
Following this, promoter Michael Lang sent a five-page letter to Dentsu saying they had illegally taken approximately $17 million from the festival bank account.
This very ugly situation just seems to get worse as the weeks go by, and with no venue for what was supposed to be a celebration, you can’t help but think that it’s game over for Woodstock 50.
