The legendary Woodstock Music and Art Festival is returning for its 50th anniversary. The festival is expected to be held between 15-17 August 2019, though the venue is yet to be announced.

According to Billboard, Woodstock 2019 will be organized by Live Nation Concerts and INVNT and is expected to be held in the original venue, Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, New York.

However, the Woodstock original producer and co-creator of the festival, Michael Lang, announced from the Woodstock’s website that “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.”

Lang also stated that the location will be announced in early January 2019.

Due to its iconic status in festival history, we anticipate well-known artist announcements in the upcoming weeks. They can choose names from another returning legendary festival.

Woodstock 2019

Woodstock festival is probably the most well-known rock festival of all time. The motto of the festival was “An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music”. It was held in a 600-acre dairy farm near White Lake in Bethel, New York. Legendary lineup included icons like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Sly, and the Family Stone and Mountain.  The event was captured in the Academy Award-winning 1970 documentary movie Woodstock, an accompanying soundtrack album. The music festival re-occurred on the 25th anniversary in 1984 and on the 40th anniversary in 1999.
