Sorry Boomers, the Sixties Are Dead

The Age of Aquarius has been extinguished:

“Woodstock 50 organizers announced on Wednesday that the beleaguered music festival, which was supposed to take place Aug. 16 through Aug. 18, is officially canceled.

‘We are saddened that a series of unforeseen setbacks has made it impossible to put on the Festival we imagined with the great line-up we had booked and the social engagement we were anticipating,’ organizer Michael Lang, co-founder of the 1969 festival, said in a statement.
