Peace, Love, Music… and glamping …

 

Organizers of Woodstock 50 have revealed their amazing lineup … and now they’ve broken that lineup down each day by stage … see below. 

 

 

Tickets to the fest go on sale on Earth Day (April 22) but pricing details have yet to be released.  However – festival promoters did say that they do not plan on selling single-day tickets, only multiple-day passes, including ones that come with camping and “glamping” options … the reason behind the lack of single day sales makes sense though:

 

“It’s really to simplify the traffic patterns. We don’t want people coming in and out on a daily basis it seems that would create more problems than we need and frankly anyone who is interested in coming should come for the three days,”

 

Organizers also brought up the ill-fated Woodstock ’99 …

 

“In the end, it was partially my fault (and) partially the fault of the fans of Insane Clown Posse who were running amok all weekend. But at the end of the show, the Chili Peppers were on stage closing the festival. They had been given permission to hand out candles, and that was a mistake. [People] started to set things on fire, and it started to grow.”

They also blamed “angry” music of the time, a la Limp Bizkit’s “Break Stuff” anthem

But this year -  “The music we have this time is not angry, it’s very progressive and very socially relevant,”
