The Announcement:
Here’s the MDF 2022 running order! Thanks for your patience while we sorted this out. More than ever, it was a pretty involved task that took longer than expected to finish. There’s a few lineup changes that we need to bring to your attention. As disappointing as this will be for some people, we’re sorry to say that Nifelheim will not be playing.

There are several issues that led to this, one of which being the delayed approval of their visas. When delays like this happen, we have the opportunity to pay thousands of dollars more for an “expedited” approval, but when the vaccination status of members in the band was brought to our attention, we decided to not pay for this, as we would just be getting visas approved for a band that can’t enter the US due to current entry requirements that prohibit their entry. Quite a bit of money has already been lost on attempting to get the band to the US (in early 2020 when their visas were approved before Covid — and again in 2021 when we had to pay for another visa petition), so we’re not in a position to lose even more.

The Press Release:
The Museum at Bethel Woods, the National Register Historic Site of the 1969 Woodstock Music & Art Fair, is working on compiling an archive of oral histories of Woodstock from the people who experienced it firsthand. The Museum is asking festival alumni to connect and arrange for their stories to be heard and recorded. The goal is for these combined narratives to tell the untold story of the festival, preserving them for generations to come.

“Realizing the average age of Woodstock attendees is 75 years old, now is the time to find the lost stories of the festival and save their place in history,” said Neal V. Hitch, Senior Curator, The Museum at Bethel Woods. “In order for the impact of Woodstock to be felt 100 years from now, collecting oral histories of this iconic festival is critical. It is our goal to find as many attendees as possible and document their firsthand experiences, which will also inspire the next generation of young artists, musicians, and music lovers.”

Hellbangers,

What can we say except that we are proud (and excited) to finally unveil the long-awaited line up of our anniversary edition! Keeping such a line up as a secret for several weeks has been no easy task, especially in the last few days…

It’s been more than 16 months since our work rhythm was turned upside down by the arrival of this virus, since the live music industry was extinguished. Despite this, our confidence has never been affected and we have kept working with a positive mindset.
