Hov pulled out right after rock ‘n’ roll legend John Fogerty.
We all know when it comes to Jay Z if it don’t make dollars it just don’t make sense!!!
Although he was set to headline on the last day, Jay-Z pulled out just weeks before the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock festival. According to reports from The Associated Press, he is no longer scheduled to perform at the three-day event (Aug. 16-18).
Allegedly the festival’s 50th anniversary has faced multiple complications within the last few months including permit denials, loss of a financial partner, a production company, and failure to launch a portal for ticket sales.
Bloomberg reported as of Thursday (July 25), the festival is going to move to Maryland’s Merriweather Post Pavilion instead of the original location of upstate New York.
Its also being said event organizers are trying to pitch the festival as a nonprofit fundraiser dedicated to attract more voter turnouts and promote climate change. The festival is under talks to be called “Woodstock 50 Washington.”
Current plans show that the event organizers are hoping the one- day passes will go for between $129-$595.
The first Woodstock was launched on August 1969 in Bethel, New York. The three-day peace, music, and art fair was created by the youth and the conditions they were facing at the time.
Somehow it doesn’t see that Hov is stressing because it gives him more time to prepare for his own summer fest show Made In America. It all goes down Aug. 31- Sept.1 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Acts set to perform are Travis Scott , Cardi B, Lizzo, Lil Uzi Vert, Bazzi, and Gucci Mane.
But no Meek Mill?!
What’s your 2 cents?!
