Now that we have the full line-up for this year’s 50th-anniversary celebration of Woodstock, the next logical question would be, what artists will play on what stage?
We can inform you that Robert Plant and Led Zeppelin’s brother from another mother Greta Van Fleet, will not be playing on the same day.
Co-founder Michael Lang announced the lineup for Woodstock’s 50th earlier this month, and the three-day event will be taking place in Watkins Glen, New York, August 16th-18th. The line-up is diverse, to say the least, including The Killers, The Black Keys, Imagine Dragons, Robert Plant, Santana, David Crosby, John Fogerty, and Grateful Dead offshoot Dead and Company. And when you add acts like JAY-Z, Miley Cyrus, and Chance the Rapper, you can see what we mean by diverse.
So, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty, the stage line up.
The festival will have four very different stages — The Peace Stage, The Love Stage, The Music Stage, and The Garden Stage. As you can imagine, each of the stage line-up’s will have acts of the same ilk.
Friday night’s headliners will include The Killers, Miley Cyrus, and Santana, with Robert Plant & The Sensational Shape Shifters will open for Santana.
Saturday night see’s Dead & Company, The Black Keys, and Chance the Rapper will serve as headliners, and newcomers Greta Van Fleet will be opening for The Keys. One highlight of the Saturday night line-up is a throwback to the original Woodstock of 1969, just like they did at the original three-day event, David Crosby and Country Joe McDonald will be playing sets on The Garden Stage.
Wrapping things up on Sunday you can catch headlining sets from JAY-Z, Imagine Dragons, and Halsey. Also on that day, you can catch sets by Canned Heat, Pussy Riot, and The Zombies.
No word yet on the price of tickets, but one thing we do know is that they go on sale April 22nd.
