The official lineup for Woodstock 50, the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock festival to be held in Watkins Glen this summer from Aug. 16-18, was announced by festival producers Tuesday evening.
The three day festival will feature a variety of mostly modern artists with some legacy artists from the original 1969 festival sprinkled throughout. The acts are set to perform on three stages, the Peace Stage, the Love Stage and the Music Stage.
“We’ve lined up artists who won’t just entertain but will remind the world that music has the power to bring people together, to heal, to move us to action and to tell the stories of a generation,” said Michael Lang, co-founder and producer of the 1969 and 2019 Woodstock festivals. “Our hope is that today, just as in 1969, music will be the constant that can inspire positive change.”
