YONKERS -

Organizers of Woodstock 50 were dealt another blow this week.

The organizers latest bid to hold the festival at Vernon Downs, just east of Syracuse, was rejected.

Organizers say they will look for other possible venues

"I won't try again here," says organizer Michael Lang. "That's for sure."

The event has not been canceled.

The three-day festival is expected to attract 65,000 people and dozens of major music acts, including Jay-Z and Miley Cyrus.
