BETHEL, NEW YORK: The official logo of the Woodstock Music Festival features a white dove on a guitar neck. This is from the original site marker sculpted by Wayne Saward in 1984. September 27, 2015 - Image

After rumors following the delay of ticket sales, Woodstock 50 has been canceled.

Dentsu Aegis Network, one of the festival’s main investors, released the following statement to Billboard:

“It’s a dream for agencies to work with iconic brands and to be associated with meaningful movements. We have a strong history of producing experiences that bring people together around common interests and causes which is why we chose to be a part of the Woodstock 50th Anniversary Festival.  But despite our tremendous investment of time, effort and commitment, we don’t believe the production of the festival can be executed as an event worthy of the Woodstock Brand name while also ensuring the health and safety of the artists, partners and attendees. As a result and after careful consideration, Dentsu Aegis Network’s Amplifi Live, a partner of Woodstock 50, has decided to cancel the festival.  As difficult as it is, we believe this is the most prudent decision for all parties involved.”
