It is being reported that Woodstock 50 will now be a benefit concert and that they’ll release tickets to the public free of charge and provide instructions for how and who can get into the event. TMZ ran with this exclusive just now…

Sources familiar with the event plans tell us, organizers have decided to release tickets in the coming days free of charge. We’re told a limited number of seats will be available for the show — which has been moved to Maryland — and instructions on how to get tickets will likely be posted by the end of the week.

With The Black Keys, Dead and Company, Jay-Z and John Fogerty all confidently out at this point, who knows who they’ll be able to get on short notice.

We’ll have more on this as it is unveiled.
