August 16th – 18th
Watkins Glen, New York
The Woodstock 50 music festival set to be held in Watkins Glen, New York marks the 50th anniversary of the original Woodstock festival. With an energetic and modern lineup—including Miley Cyrus, Jay-Z and The Killers—the festival is expected to be one of the most successful of the summer.
Despite the loss of financial backing from their primary funders in April and the ensuing legal battle, the Woodstock 50 organizers have asserted that the festival will continue as planned.
The inclusion of acts like Dead & Company and John Fogerty provide a nostalgic nod to the 1969 lineup that made Woodstock so iconic. Additional performers include: Chance the Rapper, The Lumineers, Leon Bridges, Halsey, Common and more. The festival is a three-day long event with tickets expected to go on sale soon.
