Watkins Glen International racetrack in Schuyler County announced Monday afternoon that it would not be hosting Woodstock 50 Festival.
But organizers for the Woodstock 50 festival said the show will go on.
Woodstock 50 principal Gregory Peck said in a statement late Monday:
“We confirm that we will not be moving forward with Watkins Glen as a venue for Woodstock 50, We are in discussions with another venue to host Woodstock 50 on Aug. 16-18 and look forward to sharing the new location when tickets go on sale in the coming weeks.”
Also on Monday, Woodstock 50 lost another festival partner.
“CID Entertainment had been engaged to provide enhanced camping, travel packages and transportation for Woodstock 50,” said a statement from Dan Berkowitz of CID. “Given developments, we can confirm that CID is no longer involved in Woodstock 50 in any capacity.”
The clock is ticking and the new venue has not been announced yet.
