The Official Woodstock 50 Lineup Is Here & The Rumours Were Pretty Spot On

After being teased with rumours of who was actually going to grace the stage at the 50th anniversary of Woodstock Festival, the actual legit lineup has dropped and boy howdy it’s a cracker.

Spanning three days over the actual anniversary dates in AugustWoodstock 50 will host a whole range of artists, from the iconic OGs SantanaDead & CompanyJohn Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival, to more modern icons like Miley CyrusThe KillersJay-ZPrincess Nokia, and our very own Courtney Barnett.

Look it’s not far off what was being rumoured a couple of weeks back, so we’ll take it.

From what I can see on that list there’s no inclusion of something heinous like Jim Morrison’s Unofficial Hologram so we’re doing pretty good so far.

The whole festival is going down in Watkins Glen in New York (the state, not the city) so I’d be hustling hard to get all your mates on board for a bit a trip to the US to live out your best free-spirited 1969 (nice) lives. Maybe don’t hitchhike though.

So here’s the full lineup in all it’s glory, with a couple of cheeky Aussie players there–yeah g’day Courtney Barnett and Brian Cadd.
