"The United We Stand Festival is moving venues. We appreciate your continued support, and we will be in contact as more information becomes available. For those who have already purchased tickets, thank you so much. Your desire to be at this festival means the world to Free & Equal. If you have already bought your tickets, please send Free and Equal a Facebook message, as we intend to put on the United We Stand Festival Free of Charge to attend for all our attendees. We would like to thank all of you for your generous support of this special festival that brings together music and education."
The Woodstock location withdrew a few days before the event and had to be relocated to a farm (outside of Woodstock). Keep up your spirits, Free & Equal intends for this event to have similar historic implications towards the goal of world peace.
