Woodstock 50 reportedly canceled

News

Woodstock 50 has reportedly been canceled, it was announced Monday morning. 

Officials with Dentsu Aegis Network, which is behind the festival, released a statement to Billboard saying “we don’t believe the production of the festival can be executed as an event worthy of the Woodstock Brand name while also ensuring the health and safety of the artists, partners and attendees.”

“As a result and after careful consideration, Dentsu Aegis Network’s Amplifi Live, a partner of Woodstock 50, has decided to cancel the festival. As difficult as it is, we believe this is the most prudent decision for all parties involved,” the statement reads. 

The festival was slated to take place August 16 through 18 in Watkins Glen, New York.

Performers included Jay-Z, The Killers, and Miley Cyrus headlining in addition to artists who performed at the original Woodstock festival in 1969 including Carlos Santana and David Crosby.
