WOODSTOCK 50 APPLIES FOR NEW VENUE PERMIT
The Woodstock 50th anniversary concert may still be a go, just as a smaller event. The Poughkeepsie Journal reports Woodstock 50 has applied for a permit to hold a concert on August 16th to 18th in Vernon, New York. That’s about 55 kilometres east of Syracuse and about 185 kilometres from Watkins Glen, where the anniversary concert was originally supposed to be staged. Town of Vernon Supervisor Randy Watson says the proposal calls for a capacity crowd of about 50 thousand people, while the original called for 150 thousand. The lineup includes The Killers, Miley Cyrus, Santana, Dead and Company, Chance the Rapper, Jay Z and Imagine Dragons.
