Janelle Monae, Run the Jewels and Larkin Poe will join in the peace and music of the 50th anniversary of Woodstock this summer.
The Atlanta artists join a lineup that deftly balances current acts – Jay-Z, The Killers, Imagine Dragons, Chance the Rapper, Miley Cyrus – with familiar names for the demographic that remembers the original (David Crosby and Friends, Robert Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters and The Zombies among them).
As well, a handful of acts that participated in the 1969 festival will be back: John Fogerty, Santana, Dead and Company, John Sebastian, Hot Tuna, Canned Heat and Country Joe Mcdonald.
Country/folk will be represented by Anderson East, Brandi Carlile, Margo Price and Sturgill Simpson, while current rock earned a slot for Greta Van Fleet, The Black Keys, Courtney Barnett, Gary Clark Jr. and Cage the Elephant, among other acts.
The festival will take place Aug. 16-18 in Watkins Glen, N.Y., about 150 miles west of the original site. Tickets will go on sale April 22.
