Funny how it's so much more fun to play when it's other people's money, isn't it?
Exactly what is it about Michael Lang that makes me suspicious, and creates annoyance?
Woodstock 50’s Michael Lang Confident Fest Will Happen While Industry Waits And Sees
94 did have an awesome line up. This one doesn't.
You project your insecurities on others and then criticize them for it.
It's a shame they didn't get The Dickies or Tommy James & The Shondells to perform at Woodstock 50.
All I can say is Oy Vey!
Judge rules organizers “[fall] woefully short” of proving that Dentsu Aegis subsidiary Amplifi should return $17.8 million to put on festival
For the beleaguered three-day event, scheduled for August in Watkins Glen, New York, there was good news and iffy news on Wednesday. Woodstock LLC, the organizers of the festival, had filed a petition for an injunction against Dentsu Aegis, the Japanese advertising and marketing company that was initially going to finance the festival but pulled out (and declared it canceled) on April 29th. In its legal filing, the organizers were seeking, in large part, to have nearly $18 million in Dentsu festival funds returned to them.
Good luck with that one!
He's a promoter. Just about all of them are obnoxious and fulla sh1t. But, know this...without them, very few are equipped to deal with the industry bullcrap.
Woodstock 50 Is Back on Amid Financial Disputes
Judge ruled that Amplifi Live couldn't unilaterally cancel the event, but that hardly leads to the overly optimistic title of this piece.
Without financing it is as good as cancelled. Lang doesn't even have the correct permits yet.
Having trouble figuring out which Woodstock diaries to get. There seems to be a few different covers on the DVD. I want an authentic one, help please?
They'd have to pay me to sit through those crappy acts
Any chance of an assist?
Has Michael Lang promoted much besides Woodstock fests? I read his bio on Wiki a while back, but don't remember. He was never in the league of top promoters. He got lucky with the film rights and merchandising for the first Woodstock. It made him money and a name for himself. It's surprising anyone continued to believe he could replicate that success,
agreed...damn shame! it's ain't 1969 no matter what they think...it's over...rest it in peace and keep memories.
the whole thing is a mess and shame!
