Meanwhile, organizers say preparations continue. The anniversary event is scheduled Aug. 16-18 in Watkins Glen, New York. Amplifi Live put up $49 million before clashing with organizers over attendance, budget and other issues. Amplifi announced April 29 it was canceling the festival and took back about $18 million.
Organizers retorted the show was still on. They sued Amplifi. A judge ruled Wednesday that Amplifi couldn't singlehandedly cancel the festival but didn't have to put the $18 million back in while the dispute goes to arbitration.
