It's back!
Aug 16-18, 2019!
Woo-hoo! Let's party like it's 1999, motherfuckas!

https://globalnews.ca/news/4798871/woodstock-music-festival-original-concert-50th-anniversary/

No confirmed acts yet. But some of the rumors include:


Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Logic, Chance The Rapper, Pink, Lorde, The Weeknd, Coldplay, Kesha, Mumford and Sons, Lumineers, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, Eminem, Graham Nash, Neil Young, Santana, The Who, Phish, Joan Baez, Bon Jovi, Elton John, The Doobie Brothers, Zac Brown Band, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Daft Punk, Swedish House Mafia, Deadmau5, Skrillex, Steve Aoki,

Foo Fighters are absolutely everywhere these days. So I think those guys are probably confirmed. No way Dave would pass up on an opportunity to play a woodstock show. I also see Daft Punk thrown in there. I really, badly need to see Daft Punk live in person. But I doubt they'll be there. Daft Punk is always rumored to play at every festival these days and it never happens. 95% of stuff listed above, even though rumors, is not my cup of tea. So, it needs to be a pretty amazing list for me to want to go.

Would be neat if NIN returned and did either a 30th anniversary PHM set or a 25th anniversary TDS set... One can dream. Doubt it'll happen.

You don't think they've taken note from successful festivals like Bonnaroo and Coachella to make people don't burn the place down again?

There’s a whole lot of crap in that rumor mill.

Theres so so many festivals now, including the “mega” ones (Bonnaroo, Lolla, Coachella, etc.), that none of these feel special anymore.

Meh.

Speaking of Coachella, that’s not too far away. When does that line up usually get released?

It used to be pretty random throughout January but it's been the first week the last few years. Everyone's expecting it on the 2nd. Speaking of that, the Coachella message board is being shut down on the 31st.

I've worked other major festivals at that site. As long as they've done their due diligence as far as planning goes and actually hire enough staff, they should be fine.

Wonder if I'll end up working this one.

Apparently Woodstock won't give live nation the naming rights and it will be called the Bethel Woods Arts Celebrations, a quote:

The Bethel Woods Center For The Arts' celebrations marking the 50th anniversary of the greatest festival of all time, planned for the summer of 2019, are not produced, sponsored by or affiliated with Woodstock Ventures LC, the organizer of the 1969 festival and its other reunion festivals, and are not Woodstock events.

I guess they don't won't to be tied to shitty ticketmaster and all the shit bands,lol.

That statement is from the Woodstock guy not Livenation, I think there will be two festivals. Is there a source for this, Woodstock has nothing to do with the Bethel Woods Fest. I can't wait for the real Woodstock to be announced and blow the Bethel Woods fest off the map. Fuck them and Live Nation for trying to capitalize off of Woodstock, what a shame.
EDIT:
Yep two festivals the money grab poser shit Bethel Woods Fest from Live Nation at Bethel and the real Woodstock 2019 at a different location.

I just said to myself "original guy who put on Woodstock '69... what is he, 75 years old? He's still alive...

I am hoping for a good lineup from the Lang produced festival. He did, afterall, put together Woodstock 94, which was one of my favorite festivals ever. 99 was a disaster. I hope the 19 one is more like the 94 one, and even at the same location as the 94 one. Of course, the NIN performance in 94 was one of their most iconic. I recall watching it on PPV as a kid with my family- it was a huge gathering, like people coming to watch a sports event. So awesome, a memory I'll hold forever. Now, I wish I could have been there, mud and all. The Cranberries, Metallica when they were good, the iconic Blind Melon performance etc.

I was fourteen and already a huge nin fan. My hs girlfriend's uncle was a sound tech and he made us a cassette bootleg of the NIN set. I treasured that thing and I wish I still had it.

As far as these latter day woodstocks, MAN. Do the promoters not see the fucking irony in the rampant commercialism that is antithetical to the spirit of the original thing? You just can't reproduce that shit.
But I wish they would TRY to do SOMETHING to truly honor the spirit of the OG: they could start with free water- get a sponsor to donate free water in exchange for the visibility and hipness the brand would attain.
And they could do other things like this.
I wish they would.

Dude, Woodstock 94 makes me so jealous that I was only 4 years old at the time. Just seeing people talk about how they watched it live on PPV and how it changed their perception of the music they liked is awesome and I wish I was involved in that. You had Metallica, Primus, RHCP, NIN, Cypress Hill, etc. All of those great acts from multiple genres and it blew peoples minds. I don't think we'll get it like that again but it's cool to see that they're going to do something this year.

I went to Woodstock 94 with my then friend, now husband, and a couple other friends. We drove from Florida in a '69 VW bus that broke down in the parking lot and with help from a bunch of other people, pushed it up a hill to park. The whole trip/festival was awesome. The CSN - NIN - Metallica lineup was an odd but great combo. I wasn't the biggest NIN fan before, but after watching that performance, I was. I have such a clear memory of those hours standing there watching those bands. I have a bunch of Woodstock 94 money tokens around here somewhere. I know I have a $20 and a few others (the only currency vendors would accept). I wonder if they would take them as payment this summer, lol. After we left the 94 location (btw, the van started right back up when leaving), we joined up with a caravan of maybe 6 other VW vans and went to the Bethel site for a night where they were having a smaller, totally different vibe festival.

We do plan on going to Woodstock 19 right now. And also bring our two teenagers. But I kind of don't want to commit until I see a line up. I'm sure it will be a completely different experience now at 45 than it was at 20. When we left in 94, I can't remember exactly where they were hanging, maybe on some toll booths on the highway or maybe just the exit, but there were signs that said "See you in 2019" and I remember thinking how far away that seemed and I would be so old then. Now I can say I don't really feel much older, but I wonder where the fuck the last 25 years has gone.

I don't think I still have my tapes, but yeah, I was a bit too young to go, so my mom bought it for me on PPV. I watched all weekend, taped the whole thing, and watched a lot of it again many, many times over the subsequent years.

Five years later, I was old enough to go to Woodstock '99, which was a hell of an experience. Seeing Rage Against The Machine, Metallica, RCHP, The Offspring, Bush, Alanis Morissette, Jewel, Elvis Costello, George Clinton, James Brown, and more in the same weekend, becoming the leader of a pack of mud people, rushing the MTV stage to throw mud at Carson Daly, somehow losing my shirt during RHCP, and the shit show of the fires... it was something.

this sounds like such an awesome experience. I ran a Google+ page for Woodstock 94, and also was part of a group on Facebook when I used to have it. I just love seeing the pics and hearing everyone's stories from that weekend. I really hope you and your kids go.

I'm in NJ, and I always told myself after 94 that I'd go when I'm old enough...well, I guess I kinda have to go now right? I am waiting to see the lineup though.

If this was a festival that came to the town I lived in and I didn't have to travel for it, I probably still wouldn't go.

there's a few artists I'd see, like Run the Jewels..but..I'm not sure I'm going to go. I'll have to wait and see the prices. I would probably leave on Sunday too. Friday is the strongest lineup for me personally.

I see this lineup as being the anti-99 lineup, this is a lot more "peace and love" (though not totally) .

Nothing can top the 94 lineup though, in terms of Woodstocks. In fact, I was hoping for a couple from 94 to play this one. NIN of course.

Reznor was recording during Woodstock ’99 but had it tuned in on TV. “It struck me as some of the worst shit I’d ever seen,” he says. “It was a dismal synopsis of everything that’s bad in music right now. The incredible lack of importance seemed to jump off the screen at me. But it did make certain bands really stand out. I thought Rage Against the Machine (https://www.rollingstone.com/artist/rage-against-the-machine) looked like the Second Coming of Christ.”

I think this also speaks about the state of music and music history with the youth. The youth these days (I work with middle and high school level kids) simply don't care about old music anymore. When I was a kid in the 90's, I was knowledgeable about groups from the 60's, 70's, and 80s. It seems that the people of Woodstock 94 were too. For instance, college kids then were excited to see Blind Melon and Joe Cocker at the same festival. This is a generalization but I feel there's a lot of truth to it: the kids (and by kids, I mean people in their early 20's ) don't care about older music, and anything that's 3-5 years old is "too old and out dated" .

Damn I sound old (only in my early 30's ) .

Festival hype sucks so bad at this point, and I'm SO glad to see it crumbling. Let's get back to going to shows cuz we like the music, not because we want to pretend to have "an experience" we can brag about on Instagram while Will Smith's son does whatever he does "musically" on a stage before we pretend to give a fuck about Bad Bunny or some actor's DJ moment.

And fuck reviving a moment in history. Didn't we learn from the last couple times they tried to reboot Woodstock? This is not sad news. I guess we'll all have to catch the fucking Lumineers some other time.

I think this also speaks about the state of music and music history with the youth. The youth these days (I work with middle and high school level kids) simply don't care about old music anymore. When I was a kid in the 90's, I was knowledgeable about groups from the 60's, 70's, and 80s. It seems that the people of Woodstock 94 were too. For instance, college kids then were excited to see Blind Melon and Joe Cocker at the same festival. This is a generalization but I feel there's a lot of truth to it: the kids (and by kids, I mean people in their early 20's ) don't care about older music, and anything that's 3-5 years old is "too old and out dated" .

Damn I sound old (only in my early 30's ) .

I wouldn't say "all kids" but most these days find music disposable flavor of the month in mindset.

I was in highschool from 98-01 and at that point I could give a shit less about the classics.

All I cared about was the NU...

This board might have hit the nail on the head with 'kids' not being interested in anything older than a few years. There is now an entire generation that has been brought up with unlimited music, TV and film. Alot of younger audiences blast through playlist after playlist, consuming as much as they can. Binging show after show, not taking the story's in, and watching only the latest films as quickly as possible. They don't have favourite albums or movies, just favourite moments. They didn't have to be choosy which album they bought or game they played or show they invested in because they have them all at their finger tips so it's nearly all just disposable to them...

Sorry i think i've gone off topic.

According to this study, millennials prefer music from the 60's to 90's over music from the 2000's.

https://metro.co.uk/2019/02/07/millennials-prefer-music-20th-century-golden-age-pop-today-research-reveals-8462993/

This is just IMHO, but there isn't a single artist, rock or pop or from any other genre, who started their career after 2000 that I think are all that great.

Look at the great artists/singers/bands from the 20th Century:

Frank Sinatra
Judy Garland
Ella Fitzgerald
Elvis Presley
Chuck Berry
Bill Withers
Wilson Pickett
Otis Redding
Curtis Mayfield
The Beatles
The Rolling Stones
The Doors
David Bowie
Velvet Underground
Led Zeppelin
Black Sabbath
Queen
Aerosmith
Prince
KISS
Michael Jackson
The Eagles
Van Halen
Guns N' Roses
Nirvana
Pearl Jam
Soundgarden
Alice In Chains
Nine Inch Nails
The Replacements
Husker Du
The Cure
RATM
U2
REM
Tori Amos

There isn't a single artist from that last 20 years that comes close to those aforementioned artists.

I'd have to agree for the most part.

There area a few here and there that certainly do their own thing. Lorde, Lana Del Rey, and yea. thats all i got. Maybe Adelle. Not really into her, but her talent is insane.

The problem is, yes. I'm that guy...

Everyone has Abelton Live. Theres no experimentation with a band anymore.

Actually there is. but its not cost effective to pay a band to go into the studio, when you can pay some dumbass for his midi files.

I would definitely agree with Adele, not sure about who else though.

I agree, although I like Adele wayyyyyyy better than Lorde. I still think Adele is considered a "classic" artist like the above.

Im kinda hoping this is a signal of something coming along the lines of people are getting sick of corporate music events / music in general.

Maybe a shot back to smaller shows and actual bands again?
