Iconic Woodstock Music & Arts Festival Announces the Official 50th Anniversary Celebration

Woodstock 1969’s Co-Producer and Co-Founder Michael Langannounced today the return of the legendary Woodstock Music & Arts Fair for its official 50th anniversary celebration. Woodstock 1969 was billed as “3 Days of Peace & Music,” and 50 years later, Woodstock 50 will give generations of fans the opportunity to join together in the festival’s foundational intent of harmony and compassion. The three-day event will take place from Friday, Aug. 16 through Sunday, Aug. 18 in Watkins Glen – located in Upstate New York. Lang has put together a world-class team for curation and onsite festival production. Woodstock 50 will be the only authorized commemoration of the iconic 1969 festival and will feature an amazing lineup. To commemorate the movement that defined a generation of youth, a limited number of discounted pre-sale tickets will be available to college students ages 18-25, by the end of January. The lineup and general on-sale information will be announced over the coming weeks. “It’s time to put the speculation to rest and officially announce that Woodstock 50 is happening,” said Lang. “The original festival in ’69 was a reaction by the youth of the time to the causes we felt compelled to fight for – civil rights, women’s rights, and the antiwar movement, and it gave way to our mission to share peace, love and music. Today, we’re experiencing similar disconnects in our country, and one thing we’ve learned is that music has the power to bring people together. So, it’s time to bring the Woodstock spirit back, get involved and make our voices heard.” The 1,000 acres of greenfield at Watkins Glen International and the surrounding area will make for ample space for attendees to enjoy in revelry and community, and expansive stages primed for one-of-a-kind performances. The festival grounds will also feature lodging experiences for tents, RVs, vans, and more premium camping options. “The original site in Bethel is wonderful, but much too small for what we’re envisioning,” said Lang. “Watkins Glen International gives us the ability to create something unlike any other commemorative event and something uniquely Woodstock,” he added. Watkins Glen International also has a place in music festival history as the home to Summer Jam in 1973. “It’s a beautiful location and an ideal site,” said Lang, noting that when he first saw it, he felt “an immediate emotional connection to the land.” The festival will have three main stages, bringing together more than 60 of the biggest names…

Michael Lang, Producer and co-creator of the original Woodstock Festival in 1969, is producing the official anniversary, but not at Bethel Woods. “While the original site in Bethel remains close to our hearts, it no longer has the capacity to hold a real Woodstock Festival. I’m delighted that Bethel Woods is doing events in the coming year to celebrate what we brought to life in 1969.” In the next few weeks Lang will be announcing his plans for the official Woodstock 50th Festival to bring back the much needed spirit and energy of the 1969 original.

It appears that the North American festival circuit will include not one, but two Woodstock 50th anniversary celebrations in 2019. In an effort to address confusion regarding his involvement in next year’s Bethel Woods Music and Culture FestivalWoodstock Ventures, LLC founder Michael Lang has clarified that his own event will take place away from the site of the original festival.

While the original site in Bethel remains close to our hearts, it no longer has the capacity to hold a real Woodstock Festival,” Lang said in an official statement. “I’m delighted that Bethel Woods is doing events in the coming year to celebrate what we brought to life in 1969 and I encourage people to visit the Museum and concert venue.”

Live Nation and INVNT have partnered with Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on the event taking place on the site iconic 1969 festival from August 16th-18th, 2019. In a phone call with EDM.com, INVNT Chairman and CEO Scott Cullather said that he didn’t know whether Lang was planning a separate 50th anniversary event as they had not spoken in over a year.

Lang has also stated that he will announce his plans for the Woodstock 50th anniversary celebration in the next few weeks.

Woodstock 50th Anniversary Concert

Now There Are Two Competing Woodstock 50th Anniversary Concerts in the Works

Digital PDF LINK:

The Bethel Woods Center for the Arts has struck a deal with Live Nation to hold a 50th anniversary Woodstock event.  Just one problem.

The event will take place on the original Bethel Woods grounds that hosted the iconic 1969 music festival.

The original gathering took place August 15-18th of that year.  Correspondingly, on August 16-18th, Bethel Woods will once again relive a concert dedicated to three days of peace, love, and music.

Bethel Woods CEO Darlene Fedun saysher foundation and the town of Bethel, New York have been talking for more than a year about honoring the anniversary.

“As the stewards of this historic site, we remain committed to preserving this rich history and spirit and to educating and inspiring new generations to contribute positively to the world through music, culture, and community.”

But peace, love, and harmony apparently has its limits.

Woodstock’s original producer Michael Lang says he will be producing his own celebration not affiliated with the 50th-anniversary plans at Bethel Woods.

“While the original site in Bethel remains close to our hearts, it no longer has the capacity to hold a real Woodstock Festival. I’m delighted that Bethel Woods is doing events in the coming year to celebrate what we brought to life in 1969 and I encourage people to visit the museum and concert venue.”

Lang previously held Woodstock anniversary concerts in 1994 and 1999. Lang says the 50th anniversary festival he’s working on will include the ideas of sustainability, activism, and social justice.

The two celebrations are likely to create a division between fans who want to celebrate at the original site and those who want to attend the festival of the original’s creator.

Aside from the anniversary weekend festival, Bethel Woods will have several other Woodstock promotions this year.  The “We Are Golden” exhibit at the museum will showcase life in the 60s and why Woodstock was such an essential expression of the times.  The museum will also hold a screening of the documentary Woodstock the Movie.

Show details, headliners, and ticket information will be provided at a future date.  Bethel Woods producers say they want to get a pan-generational show that spans the decades of music since the original Woodstock concert.

Monster by Steppenwolf

December 5, 2018

Once the religious, the hunted and weary
Chasing the promise of freedom and hope
Came to this country to build a new vision
Far from the reaches of Kingdom and pope
Like good Christians some would burn the witches
Later some got slaves to gather riches
But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands, to court the wild
But she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light
And once the ties with the crown had been broken
Westward in saddle and wagon it went
And till the railroad linked ocean to ocean
Many the lives which had come to an end
While we bullied, stole and bought a homeland
We began the slaughter of the red man
But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
But she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light
The Blue and Grey they stomped it
They kicked it just like a dog
And when the war was over
They stuffed it just like a hog
And though the past has its share of injustice
Kind was the spirit in many a way
But its protectors and friends have been sleeping
Now it’s a monster and will not obey
The spirit was freedom and justice
And its keepers seemed generous and kind
Its leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won’t pay it no mind
Cause the people grew fat and got lazy
Now their vote is a meaningless joke
They babble about law and order
But it’s all just an echo of what they’ve been told
Yeah, there’s a monster on the loose
It’s got our heads into the noose
And it just sits there watchin’
The cities have turned into jungles
And corruption is stranglin’ the land
The police force is watching the people
And the people just can’t understand
We don’t know how to mind our own business
‘Cause the whole world’s got to be just like us
Now we are fighting a war over there
No matter who’s the winner we can’t pay the cost
‘Cause there’s a monster on the loose
It’s got our heads into the noose
And it just sits there watchin’
America, where are you now
Don’t you care about your sons and daughters
Don’t you know we need you now
We can’t fight alone against the monster
America, where are you now
Don’t you care about your sons and daughters
Don’t you know we need you now
We can’t fight alone against the monster
America…America…America…America…
