Ben & Jerry's Woodstock Concert Canceled

Ben & Jerry’s “One World One Heart Festival” scheduled this weekend at the original 1969 Woodstock concert site has been canceled.

Tracy Chapman and LeAnn Rimes had been scheduled to headline the festival, slated for Saturday and Sunday at the former farm, now the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, 80 miles northwest of New York City.

“An economic downturn coupled with an unexpected slump in the music industry” forced cancellation of this year’s event, the company’s Web site said.

Only 1,000 of the 30,000 tickets had been sold, USA Today reported Wednesday.

Ben & Jerry’s said automatic refunds would be provided.
