Organizers then released a statement saying, "Woodstock 50 looks forward to formally presenting in person its application to the Town of Vernon at a meeting that officials agreed late Thursday to be scheduled imminently, once they have had sufficient time to review our exhaustive plan." The meeting is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday at 7 p.m.
While this was going on, we caught up with Woodstock founder and producer Michael Lang in New York City at Rizzoli bookstore where he took part in a signing and Q&A event for the official Woodstock 50th anniversary coffee table book. However, he wasn't talking about the latest ruling, only saying, "We're on the verge of doing it or not."
Earlier Thursday, promoters of Woodstock 50 were on the offensive and doing anything they can to stage the festival from August 16th to the 18th in Vernon, New York.
UPDATE: Woodstock 50 organizers have struck out a second time with the town of Vernon, New York, which, on Thursday night, rejected their appeal to Tuesday's decision to deny a permit application.
