As revealed to Rolling Stone by Woodstock co-founder Michael Lang, considerations are being made for a 50th anniversary commemoration of the now-legendary festival, which would be held in 2019. The original 1969 event is often marked as a major milestone in the history of contemporary music and a symbol of the ’60s counterculture movement. Other festivals under the name have included a 25th anniversary incarnation in 1994, followed five years later by a disastrous Woodstock ’99 which ended in riots, rapes, and fires – after which no Woodstock festival has been held since. Could a 50th anniversary bring the music and arts fair back to its roots of peace, love, and flower power?
