Woodstock 50 to Continue Amid Turmoil
You would have thought by now that we all learned our lesson from Fyre Festival – but apparently that isn't the case for the gang over at the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock. Amid a plague of obvious danger signs, the fest shows no sign of stopping. Originally scheduled to take place at Watkins Glen on August 16-18, the festival now no longer has a venue.
Watkins Glen has now officially cancelled the event on their grounds. Almost immediately after that CID Entertainment, the company behind logistics such as camping and transport has also pulled out. While a clear reason has not been shared – it is obvious that the event organizers have had a bad run at planning the festival and it is leading them to the mess they are in now. About a month ago, after the event was originally deemed as cancelled by the event's investors – the organizers went to court to make a statement that nothing was in fact cancelled and that they would be pulling through by hell our high water.
Gregory Peck, a managing member of the woodstock organizers has just put out a statement:
“We are in discussions with another venue to host Woodstock 50 on August 16 and look forward to sharing the new location when tickets go on sale in the coming weeks”
While this may be true – with less than 2 months to go and no venue – things are looking grim.
