The Woodstock 50th anniversary festival has unveiled its lineup. Jay-Z, the Killers, Chance the Rapper, The Lumineers, Halsey and Miley Cyrus are set to headline the inaugural event. The festival will take place from August 16-18 in Watkins Glen, New York. Bethel, New York. It will mark 50 years since the original Woodstock festival, which took place from August 15-19 in 1969.
After the horror that was the 30th Anniversary of Woodstock Festival, we’re not really sure why people want to keep this cursed festival alive. However, we struggle to imagine the crowd getting overtly rowdy to a The Lumineers headliner slot. Check out the full lineup below.
