There have been several promoters that have tried to re-do Woodstock. In fact, there was supposed to be a Woodstock 50 featuring the Killers, Jay Z, John Fogerty, Robert Plant, Miley Cyrus, Janelle Monae, and The Raconteurs.

The original Woodstock co-founder Michael Lang was involved in the new Woodstock. However, the event was canceled after a series of organizational failures, including not receiving some of the permits.
