The concert event, originally planned for upstate New York, will now be held in Maryland.
According to a report from Bloomberg, the festival will take place Aug. 16 through Aug. 18 at the Merriweather Post Pavilion. The outdoor amphitheater in Columbia, Md., is estimated to accommodate about 32,000 people, a far cry from the initial attendance numbers festival organizers had suggested.
“When we heard that there was an opportunity to save this festival and bring a piece of American history to our community this summer, we jumped at the chance,” Calvin Ball, an executive with Howard County,asserted in a note to one of the organizers. “Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia is a jewel of Howard County and one of the top music venues in the nation. It felt like such a natural fit to host a historic festival on our storied stage.”
John Fogerty already pulled out.
