Woodstock‘s 50th event — and whether it’s actually happening or not — has been so hot and cold. The latest report says Donald Trump‘s attorney Marc E. Kasowitz is in bid to save the festival.
This comes just two days after the new broke that Woodstock 50 was canceled. The event’s original financial backer Dentsu Aegis Network pulled out, leading to the unfortunate announcement. There’s obviously both legal and financial problems looming.
However, original founder Michael Lang says the chief financier “[does] not have the right to unilaterally cancel the festival.” He’s currently “in talks with investors who are anxious to come in.”
“We have a short window to put this back together,” he continues. “That’s obvious. We feel it’s enough time, and there is enough interest, that we think we will accomplish it.”
He expresses even more reassurance in an email to fans: “The bottom line is, there is going to be a Woodstock 50th Anniversary Festival, as there must be, and it’s going to be a blast”
If Woodstock 50 goes through as planned, the festival is set for August 16 to 18 in Watkins Glen, NY. The event boasts massive talent including Jay-Z, Miley Cyrus, Imagine Dragons, Santana, Dead and Company, and many more.
