Woodstock 50 Line-Up Announced


An eclectic mix of acts will be part of Woodstock 50 this summer in Watkins Glen, New York.

The three-day festival, running Aug. 16 to 18, features bands like The Killers, The Lumineers, Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters, The Black Keys, Greta Van Fleet, and Imagine Dragons.

Acts from the original Woodstock are back, including Dead and Company, John Fogerty, Santana, John Sebastian, Canned Heat and Hot Tuna.

But, also on the line-up are pop and hip-hop acts including Miley Cyrus, Chance the Rapper, Jay-Z, Halsey and Common.

The original Woodstock was held in August 1969 in Bethel, nearly three hours southeast of Watkins Glen. Ringo Starr and Santana are scheduled to perform at that site on the same weekend as part of the Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival.
