After months of rumours and scepticism regarding whether or not the event would go ahead, Woodstock has revealed its slightly concerning 50th anniversary lineup in full.
Headlined by the likes of Jay-Z, Imagine Dragons, The Killers, The Lumineers, Miley Cyrus, Chance The Rapper, The Black Keys, Dead and Company and more, Woodstock 2019 notably features a number of artists who performed at the original rendition of the festival, including John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Zombies, Santana, David Crosby and Melanie.
Elsewhere, Janelle Monae, Cage The Elephant, Gary Clark Jr, Portugal. The Man, Maggie Rogers, Courtney Barnett, Leon Bridges and Halsey are set to perform across the weekend. In a sickening twist of fate, Robert Plant and His Sensational Space Shifters are also locked into perform at the festival alongside Greta Van Fleet, the Grammy Award winning quartet whose similarity to Led Zeppelin has even seen them being labeled by some as an unofficial Led Zep covers band.
Although there's definitely some surprises on the lineup - for instance, having Jay-Z, Chance the Rapper, Run The Jewels, Vince Staples, Common, Earl Sweatshirt and Princess Nokia makes for a pretty strong bill of hip-hop artists - it's fair to say that Woodstock 2019 boasts possibly the most inconsistent lineup of all time. Seriously, it looks like a family of five fighting for a turn on the AUX cord on an eight hour roadtrip - there's just so much wrong with this lineup. Suss it out in all its - uh - glory below, and find ticketing details here.
