After funding agency Dentsu Aegis Network and main production partner Superfly both pulled out, Lang revealed that he has a replacement in the works. “I think we’re transitioning to another production entity,” Lang explained to Variety. “We’re just kind of finishing up discussions this week.” The founder also explained that the event’s permit is “just days away.”
As for the loss of lead investor Dentsu Aegis Network, Woodstock issued a statement through its legal counsel, Marc Kasowitz, who has served as one of Donald Trump’s personal legal advisors since before his presidency. “This confirms that Woodstock 50 is proceeding with the planning and production of the festival,” the statement read. “Dentsu has no legal right or ability to cancel it. All stakeholders, including the entertainers, should proceed with the understanding that the event will take place as planned and if they have any questions, they should reach out directly.”
