Money Woes Mean No Woodstock Anniversary Concert

If you want to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Woodstock this Summer, you'll have to head to a movie theater. Thanks to a lack of money and sponsors, a previously planned commemorative concert won't be happening.

The original promoters of Woodstock had planned to hold a free concert in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, an event that was sure to replace hippies with hipsters.

At least Hollywood's here to re-create the epic concert. Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock opens on Aug. 28 and the cast includes some geeky dreamboats, like Emile Hirsch and Demetri Martin. All is not lost.
