Venue denies Woodstock permit, producer pulls out, Woodstock says show is still on

Venue denies Woodstock permit, producer pulls out, Woodstock says show is still on

The raging, troubled behemoth that is Woodstock 50 may be on its death-knell. The event was supposed to take place at Watkins Glen on August 16-18. However, Woodstock LC, the company that owns Woodstock's intellectual property, delayed in filing for permits to use the area until just over a month ago. (Often, festivals of this size apply for permits a year, or more than a year, in advance.) However, today, Watkins Glen said there would be no summer of love on their lawn. they issued a statement: “Watkins Glen International terminated the site license for Woodstock pursuant to provisions of the contract. As such, WGI will not be hosting the Woodstock 50 Festival.”

But, the wound grew worse. About an hour later, on of the festival's producers issued a statement: "CID Entertainment had been engaged to provide enhanced camping, travel packages and transportation for Woodstock 50. Given developments, we can confirm that CID is no longer involved in Woodstock 50 in any capacity.”

Perhaps surprisingly, Woodstock LC issued a statement saying the show must go on. Woodstock LC's Gregory Peck stated: "We are in discussions with another venue to host Woodstock 50 on August 16-18 and look forward to sharing the new location when tickets go on sale in the coming weeks."

If you want to help out, Woodstock branded psychadelic tubes are still available for $18 each, plus fees, shipping, and taxes.

Man tries to extort Radiohead after hacking files, band responds by releasing songs

Recently, a man hacked into Radiohead's files and stole about 18 hours of material recorded during the OK Computer sessions. The hacker then demanded $150,000 not to release the material. Radiohead doesn't negotiate with terrorists, so instead of paying the ransom, they uploaded all the files onto bandcamp. You can hear them all below.

Radiohead also released a statement: " We got hacked last week - someone stole Thom’s minidisk archive from around the time of OK Computer, and reportedly demanded $150,000 on threat of releasing it.

So instead of complaining - much - or ignoring it, we’re releasing all 18 hours on Bandcamp in aid of Extinction Rebellion: https://radiohead.bandcamp.com

Just for the next 18 days. So for £18 you can find out if we should have paid that ransom.

Never intended for public consumption (though some clips did reach the cassette in the OK Computer reissue) it’s only tangentially interesting. And very, very long. Not a phone download. Rainy out, isn’t it though?"

Check out the new track by the Lucky Eejits!

Today, we are pleased to debut the new track by Lucky Eejits!

If you like melodic punk rock, this is for you. "Champion" is all huge guitars, huge drums, and huge choruses. And like many pop-punk tunes, the band cuts a decidedly negative perspective behind a positively bright sounding record. And on top of that, they're also releasing a beer to go along with their new album. Out of Time West Coast Hazy IPA is out via Shoe Tree Brewing Company in Carson City, Nevada who are throwing a record release party on July 20.

Out of Time is out July 12 and you can pre-order it right here!. Meanwhile, check out "Champion" below, right now!
