RIP Michael Lang - Woodstock 1969 Promoter (January 2022)

“Michael Scott Lang was an American concert promoter, producer, and artistic manager who was best known as a co-creator of the Woodstock Music & Art Festival in 1969. Lang served as the organizer of the event, as well as the organizer for its follow-up events, Woodstock '94 and the ill-fated Woodstock '99.”

I was unaware that he passed away in January, 2022. He was central not only to Woodstock but to the original movie. I rarely think of the Festival without an image of him where he describes the Festival as a financial disaster. What a moment in time.
