New York To Host New Woodstock?

woodstock1_508239aIf by some miracle it happens, this event will wreak absolute gridlock on Manhattan: Michael Lang, the organizer of both the original Woodstock in 1969 and the quite disastrous reunion event in 1999, is risking the Woodstock name once again by attempting to put together a free, green festival for the 40th anniversary this summer. According to the London Times, Central Park and various other outdoor spaces in New York City have been scouted and talks have been opened with a distinctly retro line-up of bands, including The Who, Santana, Joe Cocker (pictured), the Dave Matthews Band, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
