Woodstock 2019 is gearing up for its 50th anniversary. And, the iconic music festival boasts its eclectic lineup featuring many of music’s stars.
Woodstock 2019 is scheduled for the 16th of August in Watkins Glen, New York. The original Woodstock festival took place on the 15th to the 17th of August. It was held at a dairy farm in the Catskill Mountains in New York State.
Festival organizer Michael Lang recalls fondly of the early days of the iconic festival.
“Woodstock 1969 was a reaction by the youth of its time and the conditions we faced. We proved that it is possible to live together in harmony and with compassion … with only our best selves represented. Woodstock gave people around the world hope, which is why I think it remains relevant today.”
Lang also promised Rolling Stone that their line up was definitely diverse, and there was something for everyone.
“It’ll be hip-hop and rock and some pop and some of the legacy bands from the original festival … I want it to be multi-generational. Woodstock ’94 was a nice mix of young and old and that’s kind of what we’re going for here.”
Tickets for the show and complete information is available on the festival’s website.
