Troubled Woodstock 50 festival will need a new location

The Woodstock 50 Festival will not be held at the Watkins Glen International racetrack, according to a statement issued by the venue this afternoon. The announcement leaves festival promoters just over two months to find an alternate location before the planned Aug. 16-18 event, which marks the 50th anniversary of the 1969 festival and is being organized by original promoter Michael Lang.
