The Woodstock Music & Arts Fair is returning 50 years after the iconic festival first took place. The anniversary celebration, which will be held over three days from Aug. 16-18 in Watkins Glen, N.Y., is being organized by festival co-founder Michael Lang. “It’s time to put the speculation to rest and officially announce that Woodstock 50 is happening,” he said in a statement.
Though an official lineup has yet to be announced, Lang reveals the acts set to take the stage will be “primarily contemporary talent, but the legacy acts will be represented and honored.” The festival’s setup will consist of 3 main stages and will feature over 60 performers across rock, hip-hop, pop, and country. The showcase will coincide with another Woodstock commemoration in Bethel Woods, N.Y., where the event debuted in 1969.
