Woodstock 50th Anniversary celebration on the way

Plans are being made for a 50th anniversary celebration of Woodstock

Festival organizer Michael Lang, inducted last week into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame, told reporters the process is underway. But don't expect it to take place on the iconic upstate New York property known as Yasgur's Farm.

Lang said in a recent interview plans for a 50th anniversary celebration of Woodstock are underway:

"We're working on that right now and hopefully, we'll be bringing Woodstock back to a new generation.

Reporter: In the same place?

Lang: No."

Lang recalled how the "peace and love" spirit of 1967's "Summer of Love" "was starting to crumble." In the wake of the Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King assassinations and a spiraling war in Vietnam, young people across America were "losing that dream."

Lang talked about why Woodstock still matters 50 years later:

"It came to symbolize hope for a better world, a more compassionate world, a healthier world. And I think that's resonated."

Lang said he wasn't ready to reveal any specifics, but added "they're coming."
