Plan for Free Festival to Mark Woodstock’s 40th Anniversary

Plan for Free Festival to Mark Woodstock’s 40th Anniversary

imagination-colors.jpgThe last attempt to revive the original Woodstock experience, for a 30th anniversary festival in 1999, ended in chaos with hundreds of police officers called to the site to stop rampaging fans from looting the overpriced vendors.

Now Michael Lang, the organiser of both events, is risking the Woodstock name once again by attempting to put together a free, green festival for the 40th anniversary. 

Talks have been opened with a distinctly retro line-up of bands, including The Who, Santana, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Joe Cocker, the Dave Matthews Band and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. 

Read about a myriad of anniversary plans for books, DVDs, TV and more, to celebrate the 40th year since the Summer of Love.
