Woodstock turns 50 this year and they’ve got an explosive line-up to celebrate!


The three-day music festival will take place on August 16-18 at in Watkins Glen, New York.


Michael Lang, co-founder of the 1969 and 2019 festivals, said, “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. Our hope is that today, just as in 1969, music will be the constant that can inspire positive change.”


He also previously shared that this year’s festival will feature “an eclectic bill.”


“It’ll be hip-hop and rock and some pop and some of the legacy bands from the original festival,” he told the Rolling Stone. “I want it to be multi-generational. Woodstock ’94 was a nice mix of young and old and that’s kind of what we’re going for here.”
