Woodstock 50 Music and Arts Festival will be held in August 2019, which was just announced on Tuesday by its organizers. This festival is about a very modern musical twist with peace and love. It’s a collection of contemporary performers from rock, hip-hop and pop artists that will be
joined by old-school artists.
Jay-Z, Chance the Rapper, and Miley Cyrus were among more than 75 artists disclosed as the most iconic music festival in U.S. history, which prepares for its golden anniversary. Woodstock 50 will run Aug. 16-18, 2019 in Watkins Glen, New York, west of the original site in Bethel.
Woodstock began as a music festival held on a dairy farm in the Catskill Mountains, northwest of New York City, between August 15–18, 1969, which attracted an audience of more than 400,000. Originally billed as "An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music", it was held at Max Yasgur's 600-acre dairy farm near White Lake in Bethel, New York, 43 miles southwest of Woodstock, New York. Over rainy weekends, sometimes 32 acts performed outdoors. It is widely regarded as a pivotal moment in popular music history, as well as the definitive nexus for the larger counterculture generation of the 1960’s. Rolling Stone listed it as number 19 of the 50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll. Early in 1969, John P. Roberts and Joel Rosenman were New York City entrepreneurs, in the process of building Media Sound, a large audio recording studio complex in Manhattan.
