The 50th anniversary of the seminal Woodstock Music and Art Fair has caused quite the stir in the rumor mill. After Michael Lang, one of the co-creators of Woodstock, told the Poughkeepsie Journal that “we have definite plans,” music fans across all genres have been spinning for details.

Known leak account Festive Owl got their hands on a deck that is proposing a separate event from the one mentioned by Lang. It’s called “Journey On” and was pitched sometime in the spring of 2018. The images list artists approached, including Daft Punk, Swedish House Mafia, Skrillex, Chance The Rapper, Logic, The Weeknd, Eminem, Ariana Grande, Kesha, Neil Young, Bon Jovi, Elton John, Phish, The Who, Santana, and many more artists pitched, looking to create a pan-generational lineup celebrating one of the most historic music festivals.

The event that brought more than 400,000 people to Max Yasgur’s 600-acre dairy farm in the Catskill Mountains in August of 1969 featured music icons such as Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Grateful Dead, Santana, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Janis Joplin, and many more. It makes sense that this nexus for the larger counterculture generation could organize one of the most highly anticipated lineups of next year.

Although nothing is finalized, these images add to the stirring rumor mill with a music festival plan that has not yet seen the light of day.

Though music is his forte, Chance the Rapper has been known to dabble in the visual arts. From the Vice original short Mr. Happy to his recent work in the A24 film Slice, the Chicago artist consistently shows his aptitude for the big screen. Taking his talents behind the scenes this time, it has just been announced that Chance the Rapper will serve as one of the lead producers in the upcoming movie-musical, Hope.

Following a group of teenagers who turn to art for activism in Chicago, the movie will be soundtracked by Chance’s longtime collaborator Nico Segal (formerly known as Donnie Trumpet and member of the Social Experiment). Though no release date has been announced, Chance will be partnering with a team of writers, producer, and directors who have had a hand in Straight Outta Compton, Empire, and The Leftovers, as well as manager Pat Corcoran. With such a strong concept and team, Hope is set to be a film with the soul and creativity that permeates all of Chance the Rapper’s work.
