Jay-Z leads eclectic lineup for Woodstock 50 festival

"We are thrilled with all the excitement about Woodstock 50, but we have an obligation to our fans, artists and partners, to do things the right way", festival organizer Michael Lang said in a statement.

Three more days of peace, love, and music are on the way-and they're going to be jam-packed.

Woodstock 50, which will be held August 16-18 in Watkins Glen in upstate NY state, 150 miles away from the site of the festival, will also feature the likes of Imagine Dragons, Chance the Rapper, The Lumineers and Janelle Monae.

Woodstock 50 will take place August 16-18-the 50th anniversary of the original event nearly to the day-in Watkins Glen, N.Y. Tickets go on sale on Earth Day, April 22.

Watkins Glen is located in the Finger Lakes, about 80 miles southwest of Syracuse and 150 miles northwest of the original Woodstock site in Bethel, N.Y.

Unsealed Cohen warrants show Mueller's investigation dating back to 2017
The documents do, however, include details related to charges against Cohen for tax evasion and bank fraud. They were originally filed by investigators in April a year ago to obtain additional search warrants.


The lineup for the much anticipated 50th celebration of Woodstock is out and if you were expecting a vibe that would transport you back to the counterculture of 1969, guess again.

There will be no time to rest on Saturday, as Dead & Company, Chance The Rapper, The Black Keys, Sturgill Simpson, Greta Van Fleet, Leon Bridges, Gary Clark Jr. and many more take the stage.

Scheduled for Sunday are JAY-Z, Monáe, Imagine Dragons, Halsey, Cage the Elephant, Brandi Carlile, Young the Giant, Courtney Barnett, Common, Vince Staples, Judah and The Lion, Earl Sweatshirt, Boygenius, Reignwolf, The Zombies, Pussy Riot, Cherry Glazerr, Leven Kali, The Marcus King Band, Victory, Hollis Brown, John Craigie, Amigo The Devil and Liz Brasher.
