Jay-Z, the Black Keys, Chance the Rapper and more will headline Woodstock in 2019
Woodstock is back to celebrate peace, love, music and...Miley Cyrus.
Tuesday, Woodstock co-founder Michael Lang announced the headliners of the 2019 festival, which will take place Aug. 16-18 in Watkins Glen, New York, about 115 miles northwest of the original site. The list of performers includes Miley Cyrus, Santana, Imagine Dragons, Robert Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters, the Black Keys, Chance the Rapper and more.

Here's the full lineup:
Like the original Woodstock, the mission of the new festival is to spread the positivity of peace, love and music. Lang said though Woodstock took place 50 years ago, things aren't much different in today’s world than they were in 1969.
“It’s kind of spooky how similar things are. How some of the things that we thought we’d gone past in the last 50 years — the racial divides, care for the environment and women’s rights — now we have Black Lives Matter and the #MeToo movement and climate deniers and another (expletive) in the White House,” Lang said. “So, it’s very similar.”
Tickets go on sale April 22, which is fittingly on Earth Day.
