  • Dead & Company Will Not Play Woodstock 50 Sam Berenson | Saturday July 27th 2019

The news also came just a day after both Jay-Z and John Fogerty pulled out of taking part in what has become the best joke of the 2019 concert season thus far.

A source told the Associated Press that Hov will no longer close the festival, which is scheduled for August 16-18. Tickets have also not gone on sale. Capacity? About 20,000 or 130,000 less than what Woodstock 50 originally needed.

Fogerty will play "at only one site" that weekend, the statement said.

Moving the festival 350 miles south would be a breach of the original contract that these artists were asked to sign seeing as the original contract was set for the 50th anniversary of Woodstock in Watkins Glen, New York. That will be the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, the location of the original Woodstock, which is holding a smaller event that includes Ringo Starr and Santana. After months of financing issues and permit denials in upstate NY, the news outlet indicates the three-day event is now slated to take place August 16-18 at the Merriweather Post Pavilion, an outdoor amphitheater in Columbia, MD that holds approximately 32,000 people.
