The 50th Anniversary Of Woodstock To Be Held At A New Venue!

Woodstock 50 is back on, but it’s a long ways from Woodstock! The festival will now be held in Maryland instead of New York! The last-minute deal saves the show after months of legal and permit battles. Producers confirmed that the anniversary concert will be held from August 16th to the 18th, almost exactly 50 years after the first Woodstock. The show will be smaller than planned though since the Merriweather Post Pavillion in Columbia, Maryland, only has a capacity of about 20-thousand. There’s no confirmation yet on what artists will be performing, however, it is reported that John Fogerty is the first musician to back out! Fogerty was at the original Woodstock back in 1969 as the frontman for Creedence Clearwater Revival. A statement from a Fogerty spokesman said that the artist will spend that weekend at the site of the original, at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, where a modest gathering is planned. So they hope.
