Woodstock 50 has been trying to stay afloat for months but it looks like the show is going down.

With only two months before the festival is set to happen, yesterday, Watkins Glen International officially backed out as the venue, leaving Woodstock without a home.

StereoGum reports, Watkins Glen said, quote, "[We've> terminated the site license for Woodstock pursuant to provisions of the contract . . . [We> will not be hosting Woodstock 50."

As if that wasn't enough, yesterday, the event's second producer, CID Entertainment, also cut ties. They were set to provide enhanced camping, travel packages, and transportation.

Even with all of this, the organizers are still refusing to cancel the show. 

Last night, they said, quote, "We're in discussions with another venue to host Woodstock 50 on August 16th to the 18th, and look forward to sharing the new location when tickets go on sale in the coming weeks."

Yeah, really seems like this is going to work out well.
