    Michael Lang, one of Woodstock's founders, has revealed his plans for a possible 40th anniversary concert this summer—one that'd be free and green.

    "We want to have as small a carbon imprint as we can," Lang said in a Billboard story. "There would be a lot of legacy bands [performing]—The Who, Santana, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Joe Cocker maybe. And it would be people like Steve Earle and Ben Harper. There's certainly room for the (Red Hot) Chili Peppers and Dave Matthews...that would be the shape of the music."

    The last Woodstock-related show was the ill-fated 1999 festival that ended in a fiery riot. In case you're wondering, Lang does not think that event damaged Woodstock's rep enough to keep them from holding another. "When people think [of Woodstock] they don't think '99 or '94," he said at SXSW. "They think [of] the '69 event. I think [1999] has its ramifications, but I don't think it did any real damage in that sense."
