Woodstock 50 is set to take place at Watkins Glen on August 16-18. Michael Lang, co-creator of the original Woodstock in 1969, has enlisted the services of Superfly, a festival organization company, to handle the logistics of the massive music outing. Insiders say there will be three stages – Peace Stage, Love Stage, and Music Stage. The names come from the festival’s original slogan, “Peace, Love, and Music.”

There will also be another festival at the original site, also August 16-18 called the Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival. The bill will feature original Woodstock performers Arlo Guthrie, Santana who will be  joined by Ringo Starr, Edgar Winter and the Doobie Brothers.
