A hearing is set to continue Tuesday in the clash between organizers and a former financial partner.

A New York City judge began hearing arguments and testimony Monday.

The two sides traded accusations of broken promises as they argued over money, control and whether the festival can go forward. It's set for Aug. 16-18 in Watkins Glen, New York.

Investor Amplifi Live LLC has said it's canceling the concert amid health and safety concerns.

Organizers Woodstock 50 LLC say it's still on. They're suing Amplifi Live, saying it's trying to tank the event and should be stopped.

Amplifi Live says the organizers were incompetent, so it took control of the festival and nixed it.
