After months of anticipation, Woodstock 50 organizers have at last shared the full lineup for the festival’s half century anniversary. John Fogerty, Santana, Country Joe McDonald, Canned Heat and Hot Tuna, and John Sebastian, who all appeared at the 1969 event will perform at Woodstock 50, in homage to the festival’s original lineup. The Grateful Dead, who also graced Woodstock’s 1969 lineup, will take the stage at Woodstock 50 as Dead & Company with John Mayer.

The three-day lineup is an eclectic amalgamation of 1969 artists and comparatively more recent acts. The Killers, Halsey, JAY-Z, Black Keys, Chance The Rapper, Miley Cyrus, Cage the Elephant, Miley Cyrus, Janelle Monae, Earl Sweatshirt, and Brandi Carlile illustrate the genre-canvassing character of Woodstock 50’s sprawling roster of talent.

“Woodstock ’94 was a nice mix of young and old and that’s kind of what we’re going for here,” festival organizer Michael Lang told Rolling Stone. Woodstock 50 will take place from August 16-18 at Watkins Glen, New York. Tickets for the landmark anniversary event will go on sale April 22. More information about tickets can be found on Woodstock 50’s official website.

Woodstock will be returning this summer to Watkins Glen, New York for its 50th anniversary, and with the announcement of the legendary music festival’s return has come heightened speculation surrounding which artists will be performing at Woodstock’s legendary return. Twitter account @TheFestiveOwl initially confirmed the festival’s return after speaking to the CEO of INVNT, one of the partner promoters of the event. Now the account has made some bold claims about potential talent lined up for the anniversary event.

The Twitter account has begun trickling out speculative information on who might be performing, naming artists like Miley Cyrus, Jay Z, The Black Keys, Halsey, The Killers, Chance The Rapper, Imagine Dragons, and Dead and Company. The Twitter account later deemed that headliner guarantees ranged between $1-3 million per act based on the estimated festival attendance of 125,000 per day.

Now, despite no official confirmation on the lineup yet, Variety is substantiating most of this information, as the final lineup is expected to land in full soon. In a statement issued on March 4, Woodstock co-founder Michael Lang said,

“There’s always been lots of rumors around Woodstock. We have excellent partners and an incredible talent lineup of over 80 artists which will be announced within the next couple of weeks. We’re preparing a once in a lifetime event.”

Information about the festival and tickets are available on Woodstock.com.
