Woodstock 50 festival officially cancelled

31 July 2019

A huge US event to celebrate 50 years since the Woodstock festival has been cancelled just two weeks before it was due to start.

Organisers blamed a series of "unforeseen setbacks".

The news will come as little surprise to many, as the proposed venue had already been changed and various artists had dropped out.

Woodstock 50 originally had Jay-Z, The Killers and Miley Cyrus on the bill.

The main investor had first announced its cancellation back in April, but organisers "vehemently denied" the report and pressed on with preparations.

2. I wasn't a Woodstock 1969 attendee, but from what I've read,

instead of having the 50th-year Anniversary Woodstock concert, that the movie Woodstock, which is about the original 1969 Woodstock festival, will be played in selective movie theaters, nation-wide, in a national 50th-year Anniversary re-release of this film.
