Tickets were supposed to go on sale yesterday for Woodstock 50.... but looks like plans have changed, AGAIN!
The big 50th anniversary of the original Woodstock fest is set for August 16th, 17th and 18th with artists like The Killers, Santana, John Fogerty, Robert Plant and the Sensational Shape Shifters, and so many more! While tickets were set to go on sale yesterday...it has been announced that sales have been delayed and it's for a VERY big reason. In fact, rumor has it that the fest could be canceled altogether!
“There is currently a hold on the Woodstock 50 on-sale date,” Woodstock talent manager Amanda Phelan wrote in an email. “We are waiting on an official press statement from Woodstock 50 regarding updated announce, ticket pricing, and overall festival information. We will get this information to you as soon as we receive it.”
It's being reported that festival organizers have yet to "secure a mass gathering permit" from the village of Watkins Glen, where the festival is supposed to take place. Until a permit is acquired, they aren't allowed to sell tickets!
Wouldn't you think this is something they would have taken care of before anything else? While rumors say they may cancel the thing altogether, it is said the festival will still take place. Organizers seem to say that canceling isn't an option! Hmmm...what will end up happening here?
