Could Phish get a slot at Woodstock 2019 at Watkins Glen??? Me thinks yes!!!

Michael Lang said in that Rolling Stone interview that he already has the Woodstock 2019 lineup already booked. Will the band Phish get a slot at Woodstock 2019 as part of their summer tour they just announced? Woodstock 2019 is scheduled for Aug. 16th, 17th and 18th.

If you look at Phish’s tour schedule you’ll see that Phish doesn’t have those dates: Aug 16th, 17th and 18th listed at all. Could it be that Phish will soon add Woodstock to their tour schedule once they get the permission to announce it?

Check it out:

It’s a possibility that Phish may get a slot at Lang’s Woodstock 2019 so we’ll have to wait and see. Phish got a headlining slot at this year’s Bonnaroo festival and they are playing 3 sets at that festival. Don’t be surprised Phish could be playing at Woodstock this year.

I know the band Phish isn’t for everyone but I fucking love them still. A lot of fans turned their backs on Phish over the years but I never have. I’ve always loved Phish and still find them a phenomenal band. I love Trey Anastasio as I think he’s a great guitarist and great songwriter too. He’s also one of the best live performers so I don’t understand why people hate Phish. I think they are great and I plan on collection all of their studio albums once I complete the rest of the Grateful Dead’s collection of studio albums.

Yeah, I am a huge fan of the jam band genre. I love all sorts of music. I listen to everything pretty much.

Woodstock 2019 by Michael Lang confirmed for August at Watkins Glen…

The real and official Woodstock Festival founded by Michael Lang has been officially confirmed to Rolling Stone that a three day Festival is gonna happen in August at Watkins Glen. Michael says to Rolling Stone that the lineup has already been booked… he doesn’t say what bands and artists are on the lineup but he hints the lineup has full of rap, pop and rock acts on the bill.

Michael says he wants newer talent to cover some songs from bands that played on the original 1969 to help celebrate the original’s 50th Anniversary and that sounds interesting.

Michael also says there will be some bands from the original Woodstock reuniting for Woodstock 2019. He doesn’t say who, of course. There have been talks of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young reuniting for 2019 but Michael says he talked with all of them. The guys still don’t get along and they hate each other still so don’t expect a CSNY reunion ’cause it probably won’t happen.

So what bands from the original Woodstock could be making a comeback for this one? The Who? Yes, maybe. I’m sure Carlos Santana will be getting a slot ’cause he’s still around playing music. Other possibilities could be Canned Heat, Sweetwater, Sly and the Family Stone, Blood Sweat & Tears, Mountain, etc.

What about Creedence Clearwater Revival? No, definitely not possible ’cause Fogerty and the surviving members of Creedence still hate each other, I think but I can definitely see John Fogerty’s solo band getting a slot ’cause CCR played the original Woodstock. It’ll be cool. Hey, ya never know, though… maybe Fogerty and the surviving members finally put their differences aside and they could reunite for a one-off show. Remember, Tom Fogerty who is John’s brother died in 1990 but Fogerty getting together with Stu Cook and Doug Clifford would be badass. I doubt it’ll happen but it’ll be cool.

The Band will never reunite ’cause that band isn’t possible without Levon Helm but I’m sure plenty of artists will be covering songs by them.

Since the Grateful Dead played the original Woodstock, I can see Dead and Company getting a slot and I bet Dead and Company did get a slot for Woodstock 2019. We’ll wait and see.

I’m sure this Woodstock lineup will be revealed real soon and it’ll be interesting.

Predicting the Woodstock 2019 lineup… who I think will possibly be booked…

Looking at how they booked Woodstock over the years, they book bands and artists of all genres including pop and rap artists. Yes, they book a lot of metal and hard rock bands too. Also, country and folk artists. Since Woodstock 2019 is the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock ’69, I’m sure you’re wondering if the festival will book acts that played at Woodstock ’69 to help celebrate the 50th Anniversary. Well that’s gonna be tough for them to do since many acts on Woodstock ’69 died over the years, many of the bands from Woodstock ’69 are no longer around but I’m sure they’ll book a few artists that played on ’69. I can see Carlos Santana and John Fogerty’s solo band getting a slot. Maybe the Who will get a headlining slot ’cause the Who is still playing music after all these years. They’re probably gonna get Joan Baez a slot who also performed at ’69. That’s probably about it really.

They’re probably gonna book a lot of other rock n’ roll legends and newer artists of today. I can see the Rolling Stones getting a headlining slot absolutely. Maybe Fleetwood Mac. Also: Phish and Dead & Company ’cause the festival is gonna want some jam band music so the audience can dance to it. Maybe Neil Young & Crazy Horse if lucky. They’re definitely gonna try to get Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band maybe.

I know the festival is going to be full of iconic bands and legends just like Woodstock ’99 was.

As for metal and hard rock bands, I can see them booking Metallica again. I can see them booking Slayer, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Dream Theater, Opeth, Ozzy Osbourne solo, Black Label Society, Disturbed, Korn, Kiss, Guns N’ Roses, Pearl Jam, the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Stone Temple Pilots, Alice in Chains, etc.

As for today’s Rock bands, I can see Woodstoock 2019 booking: the Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Greta Van Fleet, Mumford and Sons.

They’ll probably book some pop and rap artists for sure like Jay-Z, Kanye, Eminem, Drake, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and artists such as those.

As for country music, I’m not much of a country fan but I’m hoping they’ll get the Pistol Annies a slot ’cause they’re really good. I’m sure they’ll get some country artists, though. They’ll book artists of every genre, something for everybody.

It’s going to be interesting to see what the lineup will be.

Woodstock 2019 gets the greenlight, it’s definitely happening and it’s gonna happen at the same place where ’69 took place at…

Yeah, Woodstock 2019 was already confirmed earlier this year but it wasn’t yet known where it would take place at until now. It is now confirmed that Woodstock 2019 would take place at Bethel, N.Y. and it would take place at the same exact spot where Woodstock ’69 was taken place at 50 years ago which is something special.

The event is already booked for Aug. 16 – 18 in 2019. There hasn’t been a new Woodstock festival since ’99 and finally we’re getting another Woodstock festival. It’s going to be the same format: bands & artists will play on an outside stage and there will be speakers too probably.

Will Wavy Gravy be there? Wavy Gravy is still alive believe it or not. I think the man would be in his 80’s by now and I would think he would probably be there to give speeches on stage like he did at all Woodstock festivals. Yeah, I’m sure Wavy Gravy will be a part of it like always.

Finding out what the festival lineup gonna be is gonna be interesting. Wonder who the big headliners are gonna be? I’m hoping they could get AC/DC to headline if lucky enough. Maybe Van Halen too. I know they’re gonna try to get Guns N’ Roses to headline. They’ll also probably get Metallica, the Foo Fighters, KISS, Ozzy Osbourne solo (maybe?), Queens of the Stone Age, etc. I’m sure they’ll book a bunch of rock and metal acts for sure.

I’m sure they’ll also book a bunch of pop and rap artists like Eminem, Jay-Z, Kanye, Drake, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, Taylor Swift and artists such as those.

Looking at how they booked Woodstock ’99, it looks like they try to keep up with the current music industry. They book all genres. I’m hoping Phish will get a slot and maybe Dead & Company.

That’s cool that this Woodstock is gonna take place at the original site which is about a 3 hour drive from here. I’m sure tickets to Woodstock 2019 won’t be cheap, though.

When Woodstock 2019 happens, you can expect all kinds of naked people walking around, all kinds of drugs and stuff like that. Hopefully there will be no riots at this concert like what happened toward the end of Woodstock ’99.

It’s exciting to see what the lineup will be though and can’t wait. I’m sure the lineup will be revealed on the official Woodstock FB page.
