European Woodstock Canceled

European Woodstock, KRS-One, Queen Pen, Ice-T, Heavy D, Q-Tip, Ben Harper, Alice Cooper, Wyclef Jean...

The European half of Woodstock '99 has been canceled. Organizer Michael

Lang said in a statement he didn't have enough time to plan for a July

16-18 event in Austria, which was to have featured Metallica,

Alanis Morissette, Iggy Pop and others. "It became clear

to me," Lang said, "that for Woodstock to be a safe and successful event

in Europe, more [planning] time was needed." The U.S. half of the

festival in Rome, N.Y., is still on for July 23-25, though no acts have

been announced. Lang said he hopes to reschedule the European show in

2000 or 2001.
