the fever 333

Last month, after a series of unfortunate events, Woodstock 50 officially canceled their upcoming celebration. Now, in wake of the cancellation and in celebration of what the festival should have been, FEVER 333 have announced a pop-up fest of their own.

Check out “Wouldstock” below!

The news of Woodstock’s cancellation came days after a venue change, shift to a free benefit show and several artists dropping from the lineup.

The event was first announced in March to be held Aug. 16-18 in Watkins Glen, New York. Most recently, after continuous venue issues, it moved to Maryland’s Merriweather Post Pavilion. At the end of last month, festival organizers officially pulled the plug.

FEVER 333 then announced they would be holding their own “Wouldstock” taking place Friday, August 16 at The Brickyard in New York.

The event is free and would offer a platform to local artists, activists and community members. You can read the band’s full statement and watch a video below.

“In spirit of WOODSTOCK as well as the beginnings of this project we will be having a FREE pop up festival in lieu of the @woodstock at The Brickyard (Chance parking lot) in Poughkeepsie, NY next week August 16. Also- we would like to offer this platform to local artists, activists, community members while we have the chance to.

We will be randomly selecting, via Instagram, a few slots on this festival. In order to be considered please post this flyer in your story and/or your feed and post @fever333#wouldstock along with a local charity you would like to raise awareness for. We hope this reminds the community and any others that you do not have to wait and be given permission to activate the change you want to see. We hope this reminds the people of their power. We’ll see you next Friday.⁣”
