‘Karen Dalton: In My Own Time‘ explores the life and music of folk great Karen Dalton, and will be out October 1. It features rare performance footage, interviews with Nick Cave and more, readings from Angel Olsen and a score by Julia Holter.
”We are saddened that a series of unforeseen setbacks has made it impossible to put on the Festival we imagined with the great line-up we had booked and the social engagement we were anticipating,” original Woodstock co-founder Michael Lang said.
”We regret that those in Vernon who supported Woodstock have been deprived of the once-in-a-lifetime chance to be part of the rebirth of a cultural peace movement that changed the world in 1969 and is what the world needs now,” festival organizers write.
”We believe in Woodstock as an important American cultural icon and look forward to its regeneration in the green fields of Watkins Glen this August with all of the artists on the remarkable lineup,” a representative of new Woodstock 50 investor Oppenheimer & Co said in a statement.
It was a mixed outcome in court for Woodstock, but original festival co-founder Michael Lang discussed it with his usual uncanny optimism in a new interview with Q104.3's Jim Kerr, where he suggested a ticket sale may be announced in the next week to ten days.
The festival has quite a bit of money to raise before its scheduled start date of August 16, as well as permits to obtain, tickets to put on sale, infrastructure to put in place, and more, if it's to go on as planned.
”Woodstock 50 LLC’s and Michael Lang’s misrepresentations, incompetence, and contractual breaches have made it impossible to produce a high-quality event that is safe and secure for concertgoers, artists, and staff,” the lawyer of former Woodstock financial partner Dentsu Aegis Network writes.
