Troubled Woodstock 50 Fails to Keep New York Venue for Festival

Despite his effort to find new investors to fund the music event, Michael Lang is forced to look for a new site after bosses at Watkins Glen International chose to back out of their contract.

AceShowbiz - The embattled Woodstock 50 anniversary festival has suffered another setback after New York venue officials backed out of the troubled event.

Organiser Michael Lang had been hoping to get the big gig back on track after finding new investors to fund the star-studded bash, originally planned to take place at Watkins Glen International in August.

However, bosses at the race track have since chosen to terminate the site licence for Woodstock 50, citing the terms of their contract with Lang and his fellow promoters, reports TMZ.

The news means the mega show, which had promised headlining sets from the likes of Jay-Z, Dead & Company, and Imagine Dragons, is now without a home.

Lang, who also organised the original Woodstock in 1969, has yet to comment on the venue loss.
