On Thursday we reported that Live Nation has partnered with marketing agency INVNT to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Woodstock to create an event that will take place at the original festival grounds in Bethel Woods, NY, from Aug. 16-18. Michael Lang, producer and co-creator of the original Woodstock Festival, has just announced that he will produce his own official anniversary celebration which will occur elsewhere.
Lang clarifies, “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 will make an announcement over the coming weeks for his plans to honor the 50th anniversary of Woodstock.
