All now in their 70s and beyond, many rock music zealots from 50 years ago are planning to relive moments from their 20s by attending the iconic music festival that will celebrate its half-century birthday.
Woodstock 50 is advertised to happen this year from August 16 to 18 at the original site of Watkins Glen in upstate New York. However, there are rumors and news reports that the event will be cancelled because of the loss of major financial backing.
Anyone remember 1969? World events that year included first man to walk on the moon, gas 35¢ a gallon, new Toyota Corolla $1,950, Nixon elected President, NY Mets won World Series and NY Jets won Super Bowl. And Bernie Sanders applied for Social Security.
If you plan to attend Woodstock 50, keep in daily touch with news of schedules, costs and whether it’ll be on or off. For current info, go to http://www.theguardian.com/music/2019/apr/30/woodstock-50-thrown-into-doubt-after-backer-cancels-festival
