Woodstock 50th Anniversary Concert in Works?

What do you think about this? A Possible 50th anniversary celebration of Woodstock could be in the works although right now this information is not confirmed.  Rumors have been floating around in upstate NY for the past few days. And now even more Information is emerging. The festival might even be called "Journey On". Here's all we know so far...

Original Woodstock promoter Michael Lang who spoke with the Poughkeepsie Journal this month he said: "We have definite plans".

According to Syracuse.com:

Artists allegedly approached include Daft Punk, Bruce Springsteen, Eminem, Ariana Grande, Coldplay, Phish, The Weeknd, Elton John, Bon Jovi, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Pink, The Who, Santana, Zac Brown Band, Mumford & Sons, and The Chainsmokers (featuring Syracuse University alumnus Drew Taggart). Avicii was also included, but @TheFestiveOwl points out the images were from sponsorship proposals earlier this year, before the superstar DJ's death.

The Festive Owl also points out that none of the artists are confirmed, noting that the lineup slide only provides "potential clients a gist of who they will be targeting." 

It's unclear if the artists were approached for the same anniversary event Lang is teasing. Lang told Rolling Stone back in 2014 that he was already starting to think about a Woodstock 50th anniversary concert to be held in Upstate New York sometime in 2019. 

Lang has not said when or where the event will happen, cautioning that "this is not a done deal yet but it's very close." An official announcement is expected soon, he told the newspaper.

Performers have also not been named, but The Festive Owl, has shared a look at a rumored lineup. Images show a deck seeking sponsorship, saying the event -- tentatively called "Journey On" -- will be held over three days on multiple stages at the Bethel Woods Performing Arts Center (near the original Woodstock site).
