While those in charge with putting the festival together have been scratching and clawing to do whatever they can to ensure that it can still take place, it’s being reported that Woodstock 50 has now lost its venue in Watkins Glen, who has pulled out. This sadly may be a final death knell for the festival.
Woodstock, the biggest-ever American music festival that was first held in Bethel Woods, NY in 1969, is an iconic event that brought together incredible musical acts that emphasized social justice and reform. Festival co-creator Michael Lang has said, “Woodstock, in its original incarnation, was really about social change and activism.”
“Woodstock ’99 was just a musical experience with no social significance,” [Lang] says. “It was just a big party. With this one, we’re going back to our roots and our original intent. And this time around, we’ll have control of everything.”
This time around, Woodstock promises to get back to its roots, and this festival that will be held over the weekend of August 16th-18th may be the most hyped festival of this generation.

This year’s anniversary event will be held at Watkins Glen International racetrack in Watkins Glen, NY. The 1,000-acre site will provide space for fans to camp in tents, park their RVs and vans, and will have “glamping” options that have become customary for other major modern festivals held in more rural landscapes like Coachella and Firefly.
Woodstock Tickets Sold Out – Now what?
If you weren’t able to secure tickets through any presales or general sales for Woodstock, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Tickets can still be purchased from secondary marketplaces, although the prices will not be at face value. With a festival as culturally significant as Woodstock that will take place for the first time in 20 years, prices are anticipated to be as high as any festival we’ve ever seen, but that doesn’t mean that good deals can’t be had – if you know where to look.
