SAUGERTIES, New York (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) – A proposal by Colorado-based MCP Presents to stage a concert at Winston Farm, the site of the Woodstock '94 festival, may win state and local approval in just a few weeks.
According to the Times Herald-Record, MCP is looking for a permit to stage a three-day, four-night concert from July 11-13 for as many as 20,000-25,000 concertgoers.
MCP's Jonathan Fordin and Brett Keber, along with Michael Lang, one of the organizers for the original Woodstock festival were on hand to speak to the Saugerties Town Board at its regularly scheduled meeting on Wednesday to outline their plan. According to the promoters, they are expecting as many as 25,000 concert-goers with music ranging from indie rock to electronica.
Fordin and Keber also said that they hope to eventually develop the site as a permanent outdoor venue.
"The goal is to put in a permanent bath house, permanent showers and a permanent stage to benefit this area for the long term and attract hotels," said Fordin. – Staff Writers
