Looks like Woodstock festival might be a go.
This past weekend, one of the festival’s original promoters may have spilled the beans. His name is Michael Lang, and he says there are “definite plans” for a 2019 event. He later went on to say, “This is not a done deal yet, but it’s very close”.
A leaked pitch deck from the festival also lists a number of artists who could potentially be approached. Legends such as Pearl Jam, Eminem, and the Foo Fighters are said to have been pursued. Along with them might be Chance The Rapper, Lorde, Pink, Coldplay, Kesha, Ariana Grande and many more.
The Electronic Dance Music crowd might also be happy with Daft Punk, Swedish House Mafia, Skrillex, Deadmau5 and a few more rounding out the list.
Avicii’s name also appears on the deck, proving that this has been in the works since at least April before the producer’s death.
LEAK — More info is emerging on a possible Woodstock 50th anniversary celebration(s?) including the possibility of a new event named ‘Journey On’: 6+ stages, 35,000+ people, Woodstock legends + more.
