New York, Mar 22 (ANI): Woodstock co-founder Michael Lang wants to celebrate 40th anniversary of the famed 1969 music festival with a green concert this summer - possibly in New York City - if he can find some sponsorship.

“It’’s free, but it costs a lot of money,” the New York Daily News quoted Lang, as telling Billboard.com.

“Depending on how successful we are in raising that sponsorship [money] will determine when and how we do this event - or if we do this event, frankly,” he added.

Lang wants to bring back acts like The Who and Santana - even the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The 30th anniversary show of Woodstock ended in a fiery riot, but that didnt discourage Lang.

“When people think [of Woodstock] they don”t think ”99 or ”94. They think [of] the ”69 event,” he said. (ANI)
