Fans of Hip-Hop superstars Jay-Z and Chance the Rapper have been left feeling disappointed after the festival they were scheduled to storm was cancelled.
Bad news for Woodstock 50 hopefuls below…
We don’t believe the production of the festival can be executed as an event worthy of the Woodstock Brand name while also ensuring the health and safety of the artists, partners and attendees.
That message came from the Dentsu Aegis Network (one of the fest’s investors) this morning after it decided to scrap the event after fears it would follow in the damned footsteps of the famed Fyre Festival.
Fortunately, this does not mean the end for the event as its promoter Michael Lang reveals that he believes it is far from over and intends to relaunch it when everything maps out correctly on a logistical front.
The original event took place in 1969 and attracted an audience of over 400,000 music lovers.
