POWNAL, Vt. - An old horse track in Southern Vermont could have a new future as a music venue.

The Green Mountain Race Track in Pownal hosted the Lollapalooza music festival in 1996.  The owners are set to pursue permits to host more music festivals starting next year.  
Many plans for redeveloping the former thoroughbred horse racing facility have fallen through over the years. Most recently a proposal to develop a wood pellet burning electric generation plant was scrapped in 2011.
