The past couple weeks have been embroiled in Woodstock 50 drama. Is the festival still happening? Did investors pull out? While co-creator Michael Lang begins his legal battle to ensure that Woodstock's genre-spanning anniversary weekend stays alive, one of the bill's headliners is chiming in on the festival's status. During a recent chat with Billboard, Imagine Dragons' frontman Dan Reynolds discussed what he knew about Woodstock 50.
"To be honest with you, I don't know," he said of the festival's status. "We haven't been told anything. All I can say is that we were excited to perform and we're [still] excited to perform if it takes place. As far as I know, it still is [taking place]. I haven't received a phone call telling us it's been cancelled. I've seen articles telling both ways. Long story short, you probably know more than me. I have no idea."
While that might not be the most insightful response, it is good to know the bands haven't been contacted about a cancellation. If Woodstock 50 does, indeed, end up happening, it's set to take place August 16-18 at Watkins Glen International Speedway in New York State. Imagine Dragons are slated to headline Sunday (August 18).
