Sheriff Rob Maciol says it would be impossible to ensure public safety with only 40 days notice.

The on-again-of-again music festival has applied for a permit at the Vernon Downs Harness Track, after operators of the original festival pulled out last month. 

The Woodstock Festival has faced a series of other setbacks, including the loss of a financial partner and a production company.
