The legendary Woodstock music festival will turn 45 years old this August. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the festival’s organizer, Michael Lang, hinted at the possibility of a 50th anniversary event in 2019.
Woodstock 50th Anniversary In 2019?
Since the original festival, Woodstock has organized two other official events. The 1994 edition featured performances from current artists like Red Hot Chili Peppers and Green Day alongside artists from the original event’s lineup. Five years later, Woodstock ’99 became marred in violence and would be the last event planned by the festivals original organizers.
It is hard to imagine that any details exist at this point for the 2019 edition, but it is safe to assume that today’s musical climate is closer to Woodstock’s message than 1999’s lineup with Limp Bizkit and Insane Clown Posse.
