Fye Fest 2.0 has been averted.

For months, it’s been pretty evident that Woodstock 50 was not going to happen — despite the claims from organizers and investors that it was going to happen.

Well, the dream has finally been killed.

On Wednesday morning, July 31st, vendors and stakeholders were notified that the festival — which was supposed to run from Augst 16th to 18th — was officially off. Variety reported the news first.

In a statement released to Pitchfork, Woodstock said:

We are saddened that a series of unforeseen setbacks has made it impossible to put on a festival we imagined with the great line-up we had booked and the social engagement we were anticipating.

This news comes as headliners like Miley Cyrus, JAY-Z, Lumineers, Carlos Santana, the Raconteurs, and more have dropped out, due to the dysfunction around the festival. Tickets never actually went on sale because the organizers couldn’t get the proper permits. Near the end, organizers were just going to make the festival free. The festival also lost its original venue, New York racetrack Watkins Glen International. They eventually moved the festival to Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland.
