If Woodstock 50 Ends Up Happening, It Will Be Free
Woodstock 50 has had A LOT of bad things come it’s way: it lost a venue, gained a venue and then lost that venue, it had some investors allegedly stealing money, etclll. As a result of this cursed mess, Jay-Z, Dead & Company, and John Forgerty dropped out (Miley Cyrus is still on board, as far we know). Well, turns out the shit show must go on and/or Woodstock 50 still hasn’t realized it’s dead yet. Because it’s soldiering on and putting on a free show at its new venue of the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland. Get those Fyre Festival cheese sandwiches warmed up cause things are about to get disappointing!
Woodstock 50 will be a free show to those lucky enough to get their hands on tickets … though which performers will officially take the stage is still up in the air.
Sources familiar with the event plans tell us, organizers have decided to release tickets in the coming days free of charge. We’re told a limited number of seats will be available for the show — which has been moved to Maryland — and instructions on how to get tickets will likely be posted by the end of the week.
Our sources say the show will now be billed as a benefit concert … and those who are able to snag seats are encouraged to donate to their favorite causes.
Though no specific charity or cause has been named, some “favorite causes” should maybe include: freeing Billy McFarland so a better, more organized event can be planned, or helping Blink 182’s Tom DeLonge find the aliens so they can perform next time, and we should probably work on getting Lindsay Lohan her club back.
It’s still up in the air as to who is going to perform, but they’re still suffering from a case of delusion and believe it will happen on the weekend of August 16th.
Here’s the problem … we’re told it’s still VERY unclear who will perform at Woodstock. Our sources say organizers are still hopeful they’ll be able to put on a 3-day festival with music throughout … and final plans are still very much in motion. In fact, we’re told all artists who are still booked and scheduled to perform have been paid in full.
We shall see, I have a feeling those artists who have been booked and paid in full are burnt out middle school music teachers who just want to drink some White Claws and get their groove back. Who knows though maybe this will be an awesome free concert (yeah right) or (more likely) an epic mess.
