AceShowbiz - The Woodstock anniversary festival is heading to Maryland.
Organisers have moved the Woodstock 50 celebration to the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia following a series of permit and financial letdowns.
The new site, which is almost five hours from the original Woodstock site in Bethel, New York, has now been booked for 16-18 August - the same weekend of the original Woodstock in 1969.
Meanwhile, reports suggest the festival will be renamed Woodstock 50 Washington.
The news serves as a lifeline for Michael Lang and his fellow Woodstock promoters, who lost the festival's original investor, Dentsu Aegis, back in May. Permits for Watkins Glen speedway and Vernon Downs in New York were pulled over the summer leaving the organisers without a home.
