Michael Lang, the man behind the original Woodstock in 1969, has been looking to bring back the Woodstock festival for some time. Back in 2014 he first mentioned the idea and now it looks like he's making moves to ensure it happens.

In a recent interview with the Poughkeepsie Journal, Lang says he's currently talking with “potential partners and different locations are being explored.”

2019 will mark the 50th anniversary of the inaugural festival and would be the perfect time to bring back such an iconic event. With that in mind, Lang wants the brand to continue well beyond the anniversary.

"[Woodstock] is the original and most famous festival brand. With the prevalence of festivals out there, and all the excitement about them, maybe it’s time for that," Lang says regarding the Woodstock revival.

Although we are still 3 years away from the 50th anniversary, news of festival organizers bringing it back is enough to get us excited for what's to come. Stay posted as more news is sure to follow.
