Prior to Cyrus, Imagine Dragons and The Killers were the last two headline-level acts to say their goodbyes to the event.

Despite multiple drop-outs, the festival is scheduled to push on at the Merriweather Post Pavilion outside Baltimore from August 16 to 18.

On Saturday, TMZ reported that the event will also be free of charge – though its unclear whether donations will be encouraged by the guise of a ‘benefit’ concert.

The Zombies have been the only act to confirm to Variety that they’re still on board with the show.

‘I’ve always believed it would happen, which might sound kooky, but we’re at a messed-up moment in time right now and the spirit of Woodstock is something that we need,’ Zombies co-manager Cindy da Silva told the outlet.

‘If this was any other festival I’d say “Give it up already,”‘ she said.

‘But maybe the way it’s happening is right: It shouldn’t be for profit, it should be about peace and love and music and charity and people coming together.

‘If it turns out the way it looks like it should, I do believe it’ll be a powerful event that could be a moment of change. Maybe there’s a reason it hasn’t gone away yet.’

Permit complications caused festival organizers to lose the event’s original site in Watkins Glen, New York as well as a second in Vernon, New York.
