It was billed as a celebration for the 50th anniversary of the original. But Woodstock 50 seems to have more in common with the infamous and more recent Fyre Festival. The troubled event has had to switch venue from New York to the less glamorous Maryland. And in doing so, Woodstock 50’s organisers have had to release ALL of the artists from the original contract.
As a result, Jay-Z will no longer headline one of the dates. And its expected that a whole host of other artists will drop out of the August 16-18 festival. A salvage job is expected from those running the show, but there are no guarantees the likes of Miley Cyrus, The Killers or Robert Plant will show up.
