Michael Lang, Co-creator of Woodstock MF has died at 77 - Death

Michael Lang Death – Michael Lang, the co-creator of the Woodstock music festival passed away at the age of 77. He died from a rare form of non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at Sloan Kettering Hospital in NYC. He was just 24 years old when Woodstock took place in August 1969 in New York’s Catskill Mountains.

SNBC13.com reporting – The festival held on a dairy farm in White Lake, officially known as The Woodstock Music and Art Fair, An Aquarian Exposition, was down in music history as a turning point. Joe Cocker, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Band, Santana, Joan Baez, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and Jimi Hendrix, who gave a legendary performance of “The Star-Bangled Banner,” were also on the bill.

“3 Days of Peace & Music” were promised on the event’s posters. About 100,000 spectators were anticipated, but between 350,000 and 450,000 showed up, packing the place to capacity. The lack of a structure to collect money made Woodstock a free event. Additionally, Lang co-founded and produced the 2019 Woodstock 50 festival, however it was later postponed.

The lymphatic system, a component of the body’s immune system that fights infection, is where Non-lymphoma, Hodgkin’s a specific type of cancer, first appears. White blood cells called lymphocytes can develop tumors (growths) throughout the body when non-lymphoma Hodgkin’s is present. It belongs to the general lymphoma category. This category includes a wide variety of subtypes. Among the most prevalent subtypes are follicular lymphoma and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Hodgkin’s lymphoma is the second broad classification of lymphoma. The prognosis for those who have non-lymphoma Hodgkin’s has improved as a result of improvements in its diagnosis and treatment.

The Woodstock Music and Art Fair, also known as just Woodstock, was a music event that took place in Bethel, New York, 40 miles (65 km) southwest of the town of Woodstock, from August 15 to 18, 1969. More than 400,000 people attended what was advertised as “an Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music,” also known as the Woodstock Rock Festival. Despite occasional rain, 32 shows were performed outside. Michael Lang, Artie Kornfeld, John P. Roberts, and Joel Rosenman founded it.

He is survived by his wife Tamara, their sons Harry and Laszlo, and his daughters LariAnn, Shala, and Molly. He would be deeply missed.
