To celebrate the anniversary promoters of ‘Woodstock 50’ have lined up an impressive list of musical giants. Jay-Z, Robert Plant, Miley Cyrus, Chance The Rapper, Halsey, Black Keys, are some of the musicians that have signed on to try to recreate the musical magic that happened 50 years ago. The festival will be held in Watkins Glen, NY, which is about 150 miles from the original site. The festival will be held August 16th to August 18th, 2019, which were the same dates in 1969.

Some of the legendary artists that originally performed, have signed on to participate again. Some of them are, Dead and Company, John Fogerty, John Sebastian, Country Joe McDonald, Hot Tuna, and Canned Heat. The tickets for ‘Woodstock 50’ go on sale on April 22nd. Micheal Lang the festival promoter, promises the event will be a ‘multi-generational festival, with ‘legacy’ acts from 1969, and present day bands like, Run the Jewels, Vince Staples and Princess Nokia.

Ringo Starr and Santana will be performing at ‘Bethel Woods Music and Cultural Festival’ which is a dueling festival that will be held on the site of the original event and the same dates. John Fogerty is a co-producer of the event, and made the official announcement of the 50th anniversary event. Lang has been plagued by rumors of rifts between the two festivals, and money issues. Lang dismisses the talk as ‘nonsense’ and says, ‘What we’ve assembled here is a combination of some of the great artists from our era and some of the great artists of today and hopefully some of the greatest artists of tomorrow. Many of these artists are committed to social change. They have their own issues that they support, and also support global issues like climate change.”
