After rumors circulated about Michael Lang’s 50th anniversary celebration of Woodstock, which is set for Aug. 16–18 in Watkins Glen, NY, having monetary issues, a new report from Billboard confirms that Lang and festival organizers have sent out payments. Billboard also reports that the celebratory gathering will feature music from Dead & Company, Santana (who is also playing that weekend at the original Woodstock location at Bethel Woods), The Killers, Chance the Rapper and Imagine Dragons.
The reported lineup inclusions are part of a list of over 80 artists, with full details expected in the next couple of weeks, according to Lang himself.
“There’s always been lots of rumors around Woodstock,” Lang tells Billboard. “We have excellent partners and an incredible talent lineup… We’re preparing a once in a lifetime event.”
