Woodstock 50 unveils August lineup

The eagerly anticipated lineup for Woodstock 50 was rolled out in New York Tuesday (March 19), with headliners including, Jay-Z, The Killers, Miley Cyrus, The Black Keys, Dead & Company, among many others.

A total of 80 acts will take part in the festival.

The three-day lineup was presented at the Electric Lady Studio in Manhattan's Greenwich Village.

The space was opened by Jimi Hendrix back in 1970, shortly before he died.

Hendrix, of course, performed at the original Woodstock back in 1969, as did John Fogerty, the frontman for Creedence Clearwater Revival.

The latter was on hand for the presentation of the summer lineup, which will also feature him.

The rapper Common was also in attendance for the event, and he too will perform.

Just like in the past, the event is being produced by Michael Lang.

Woodstock will be partnering at the event with a host of organizations, such as March for Our Lives.

Tickets go on sale on April 22.

The event will take place from August 16-19 in Watkins Glen, New York.
