Woodstock 50 Tries For New Venue


(Oneida County, NY) -- Woodstock 50 might be back on at a new venue. 

Organizers have reportedly applied for a permit to hold the event at Vernon Downs, a casino and hotel in Oneida County, New York. Woodstock 50 was supposed to be held at Watkins Glen International race track, but the venue dropped out after organizers missed its 150-thousand-dollar final payment. Vernon Downs holds about half the amount of people as the race track. 

The anniversary festival is set to take place August 16th to 18th, with performers like Santana, Jay-Z, Miley Cyrus and Imagine Dragons.
