There has been no lack of controversy surrounding Woodstock‘s 50th anniversary celebration. The festival recently announced its line-up upon headlining artists being leaked. Now the event is being thought to be facing problems, at least from the outside looking in.
The first sign came when The Black Keys dropped out, although the group said it was due to a scheduling conflict. Now the official on sale, which was set to begin April 22, has been pushed back to an undisclosed date. According to Billboard, booking agents were just informed of the delay. “There is currently a hold on the Woodstock 50 on-sale date,” stated one for the record. However, founder Michael Lang has shrugged off the reports off as “just rumors.”
But Lang’s denial is countered by an agent closely working on the festival’s production. The source says, “No one knows what the hell is going on but there is clearly a problem,” stirring up speculation that event may be headed for the gutter. The event is still slated for August 16-18 in Watkins Glen in upstate New York.
