Woodstock 50 Lineup to Feature Jay-Z, Miley Cyrus, the Killers, Robert Plant, Black Keys

Woodstock 50

An array of contemporary performers from rock, hip-hop, and pop will be joined by old-school artists at the Woodstock 50 festival in August, organizers announced Tuesday.

Jay-Z, Imagine Dragons, the Killers, Miley Cyrus, Chance the Rapper and the Black Keys were among more than 75 artists revealed as the most iconic music festival in U.S. history gears up for its golden anniversary.

Woodstock 50 Music and Arts Fair will run Aug. 16-18 in Watkins Glen, New York, about 150 miles west of the original Woodstock site in Bethel. It follows a previous pair of anniversary fests — the upbeat mud bath of Woodstock ’94 and violence-tinged Woodstock ’99.

The acts will perform on three stages, dubbed the Peace Stage, Love Stage and Music Stage, the three keywords used in key art for the original fest. Lang was a producer of the original festival, which was held on the same dates in 1969.

Tickets will go on sale April 22 — or Earth Day, as Woodstock producers point out. Additional purchase information is available by emailing [email protected].
