Word of a Woodstock 50th Anniversary music festival has been finally confirmed by the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. The three-day event will happen Aug. 16 – 18, 2019 and is being billed as a “pan-generational music, culture, and community event” that will celebrate the golden anniversary of the original Woodstock concert with a series of concerts, TED-style talks and a “We Are Golden” history exhibit at the Museum at Bethel Woods (which is the site of the original 1969 concert).

Although Michael Lang, the co-creator of the original Woodstock festival, is planning a separate anniversary festival, the “Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival” (as they’re calling it) will be the one music lovers flock to because of their partnership with concert powerhouse Live Nation.  

So now the question is: who will be playing Woodstock 2019? Although no performer has been formally announced, we here at Mandatory have our dream Woodstock 2019 lineup that we would want to see.
