Okay, so last week talked about the fact that it still looks like Woodstock 50 is going to happen, but at the 20,000-capacity Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland, outside Baltimore, but who’s going to be on the bill is a whole other question. Over the weekend it was reported that organizers formally released all artists scheduled to play from their contracts, but this came AFTER Jay-Z, John Fogerty and Dead & Company already officially pulled out of the festival. By releasing the artists from their contracts, they are now not legally obligated to perform, although they will all still likely get paid. So far, only The Zombies’ manager says they’ll still perform if the festival happens August 16th to 18th as planned. Other artists originally announced for the fest include Halsey, Miley Cyrus, Imagine Dragons, Santana, Greta Van Fleet and more. But regardless of who is on the bill, it appears as though fans won’t have to spend a lot of money to catch the show. In fact, if you believe a report from TMZ, most tickets are going to be given away for free. The show is now expected to be billed as a benefit concert, with organizers encouraging those who snag free tickets to donate to their favorite causes. So, how does Woodstock plan to make money? Well, apparently there will be some VIP tickets sold that will hopefully offset some of the expenses. Would you go to this show now that it's free? You couldn't pay me to get near it. What about you?
