The move comes after officials in upstate New York refused to approve a permit for the 50th anniversary concert and one of the main financiers backed out.

Truth be known, the majority of the original woodstock participants would be sooooooo opposed to authoritarian Cuomo. In all honesty many of the useful idiots used by the left actually do not realize what they are doing. Forgive them Father.

Woodstock was not, contrary to opinion, born of angels Nd it produced a ton of evil. That’s all

It’s going to be at a concert venue? A venue with assigned seats and tickets? Where will people roll around in the mud? I mean, if you want the spirit of the original, shouldn’t it be on the back 40 of a farm, and if it rains, it’s more authentic to the original????

The concert...would act as a fundraiser for voter registration and climate change non-prfoit organizations.

Good. Less traffic. I lived in Woodstock. Moved away. Could not stand the week end hippie tourists. The concert was not in Woodstock. They just used the name.

“No Alvin Lee / Jimi”

Amongst many others. Most didn’t realize Joplin played Woodstock as well. She didn’t make the movie / Soundtrack. I imagine contract issues?
