Woodstock 50 ticket sales delayed

Ticket sales for Woodstock 50 have been delayed with the on-sale date being pushed back for undisclosed reasons.

The three-day event was supposed to release tickets last Monday, with founder Michael Lang being forced to quash fears of the festival being cancelled as merely “rumours.”

“There is currently a hold on the Woodstock 50 on-sale date,” read an email distributed to various booking agents and managers, according to Billboard. “We are waiting on an official press statement from Woodstock 50 regarding updated ticket pricing and overall festival information.”

Tim O’Hearn, administrator of Schuyler County, which includes Watkins Glen where the festival is set to take place, told Pitchfork that the festival is awaiting approval on a mass gathering permit by the New York Department of Health (DOH).

He said: “The health department is reviewing to determine if a conditional permit may be issued that would allow for ticket sales to commence.”

Woodstock 50, which is set to take place between August 16 and 18, includes headline acts from The Killers, Chance the Rapper, The Black Keys, Jay-Z, Halsey and many more.
