"We've lined up artists who won't just entertain, but will remind the world that music has the power to bring people together, to heal, to move us to action and to tell the stories of a generation", said Michael Lang, co-founder and producer of the 1969 and 2019 Woodstock festivals.

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.
