AceShowbiz -The wait is finally over! Michael Lang finally announced the full lineup for highly-anticipated Woodstock 50 during a press conference at Jimi Hendrix‘s Electric Lady Studios in New York City on Tuesday, March 19. Among the confirmed headliners for the annual festival are Jay-Z, Miley Cyrus, The Killers and more.
During the three-day event, Miley and The Killers are going to entertain the crowd on the first day along with the likes of Run the Jewels, Akon, Princess Nokia and more. On the other hand, Jay-Z is set to headline on the final day with Imagine Dragons, Halsey and Janelle Monae joining him. Also performing on the third day are Common, Vince Staples and Brandi Carlile among others.
As for the second day, Chance the Rapper and Dead & Company will take the stage to offer their best performances. Joining them on the second day are Portugal. The Man, Greta Van Fleet, Margo Price and more.
The event will take place from August 16 to 18 in Watkins Glen in upstate New York, where the acts will perform on three stages: Peace Stage, Love Stage and Music Stage. The three keywords were used in the key art for the original fest back in 1969 which Lang also produced.
“It’ll be an electric bill,” Lang said of the upcoming festival. “It’ll be hip-hop and rock and some pop and some of the legacy bands from the original festival … 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 from here.” Common added, “It’s no one age group or genre, it’s not monolithic — anyone who loves music and loves love would enjoy this.”
Tickets for Woodstock 50 will go on sale to general public starting from April 22.
