Woodstock '09 is On!

February 27, 2009

Head Woodstock promoter Michael Lang is planning two free Woodstock concerts in Berlin, Germany and in New York in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the original 1969 festival.

According to a recent press release, the New York show still doesn't have a venue, but will take place on the actual 40th anniversary of August 15th and 16th. The Berlin show will take place at the now-closed Tempelhof Airport on August 22nd and August 23rd.

Michael Lang and his partners are in the works of booking some of the original artists that performed at Yasgur's Farm back in 1969. Some of the iconic acts include Santana, The Who, Joan Baez, Joe Cocker, Grateful Dead and Country Joe and the Fish. There will also be a slew of new musical acts.

A new website for the show is currently in the works. There is also an official MySpace page up and running as well.
