Jay Z, Dead & Co., Chance the Rapper and the Black Keys are among the artists who will headline the upcoming Woodstock 50 music festival, according to a report in Variety.
While the headline has not been officially announced, a rep for the festival did not deny the report in Variety and pointed us to a quote provided by Festival co-founder Michael Lang to Rolling Stone, making the leak seem orchestrated.
"We are thrilled with all the excitement about Woodstock 50, but we have an obligation to our fans, artists and partners, to do things the right way," festival organizer Michael Lang said in an e-mailed statement to Rolling Stone "We are in the final stages of laying the groundwork and can't wait to stage this once-in-a-lifetime event. We'll be officially announcing the lineup and ticket on-sale soon, stay tuned!"
"It'll be an eclectic bill," Lang added. "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."
The unconfirmed lineup also included Jack White's recently revamped Raconteurs, Imagine Dragons, Run the Jewels, Gary Clark Jr., Cage the Elephant, the Killers, Greta Van Fleet, Margo Price, Sturgill Simpson, Courtney Barnett, Portugal. The Man, Dawes, the Lumineers, Pussy Riot, Dorothy and Bishop Briggs are also on the bill, according to the Variety report.
The festival, which is planned to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the original Woodstock Music & Arts fair, has been slow to reveal a lineup and last week, sources purported to be close to the festival told Variety that many acts had still not received deposits.
The festival, which was first announced in January, is scheduled to take place from August 16th through 18th in Watkins Glen, New York.
