Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival, the event celebrating the anniversary of the 1969 Woodstock festival at Bethel Woods (and not the Woodstock 50th anniversary festival, as could be misconstrued), will no longer continue in its initial form.
BWMCF will now comprise three separate events over three days, as INVNT announces that will no longer be producing the festival. Instead, it will form part of the venue’s Season of Song & Celebration commemorations, a year-long schedule of exhibits, programs and events.
Scott Cullather, CEO, INVNT explained that the agency is proud of its support and contributions to the celebration plans and the global awareness that its efforts brought to Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, as a result.
“INVNT will not be involved in the new format and we wish Bethel Woods and Live Nation, as well as the organizers of the other 50th anniversary celebrations taking place around the world, the very best,” he said in a press release.
“Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival was always about putting fans at the very heart, by celebrating the legacy of the 1969 Woodstock festival – the artists who played there and the people who attended – and inspiring them to make the world a better place through carefully curated music, culture and community-driven experiences. We hope that past, present and future fans are able to revel in the celebrations this year, and that the events empower them to advocate for positive social change just as the 1969 festival did.”
The website for BWMCF still lists INVNT as a main producer, but will likely be amended soon. Information about tickets, lineup, and activities will likely soon follow.
