Plans are underway to resurrect the Woodstock Music and Arts Festival, the original Bonnaroo, Rolling Stone reports. The Festival, which is being organized by original co-promoter Michael Lang, would take place both in Berlin and an unknown location in New York. Lang is hoping to lure Woodstock vets the Who, Santana, Joan Baez, Joe Cocker, and Country Joe and the Fish.
The 1969 concert phenomenon produced two spin-offs, to varying degrees of success — Woodstock ’94, which featured Bob Dylan, Crosby Stills and Nash, and Green Day, and Woodstock ’99, which featured Metallica, Rage Against the Machine and Limp Bizkit.
Woodstock 2009: pipe dream, or acid flashback come to life? Only time will tell.

they should hit up blind melon, or modest mouse, for that sixties, love and peace feel.
man, i can’t wait! i’ve read around and people are hating on this so much. it’s never going to be like the original, but it’s a celebration of the original. it will hopefully be better than ’94 and ’99. especially ’99.
i am so happy about this but i hope they would get the woostock 09 at the original farm spot because i live right near it,,,,
i hope it is too….i live near there also, but if it were in rome agian i could walk to it, i live less than a mile from the old air force base that they had it at in ’99.
