Sadly I don't think my personal favorite Sly Stone will be making this one.

Fantasy Woodstock: A Part Reality, Part Dream Lineup for the 50th Anniversary Fest

What would we like to see at Woodstock 2019? Just a Zeppelin, Floyd or White Stripes reunion. But we'd settle for Axl and Dylan knockin' on Watkins Glen's door.

Following the announcement of Woodstock 50, which will be held on Aug. 16-18 in Watkins Glen, New York, fans immediately began coming up with their dream lineups for the 50th anniversary of the world’s most famous music festival. Michael Lang, the creator and producer of the original fest and its two follow-ups in 1994 and 1999, promises more than 60 acts featuring “the biggest names and emerging talent in rock, hip-hop, pop and country.” He also says the lineup will be “primarily contemporary talent, but legacy acts will be represented and honored.”

With that in mind, we created a fantasy line-up for the festival that brings back some of the artists that made Woodstock a household name, some inaugural Woodstock artists and current artists across many genres.

Re: Woodstock 50th Anniversary Planned

It's curious that with all the discussions going on about getting as many of the performers who played at Woodstock back, I see next to nothing about chances of get in Billy Cox to perform. Billy replaced Noel Redding in the Jimi Hendrix Experience just before the Woodstock performance and went on to play bass in the short lived Band of Gypsys. He still performs today in small places from time to time.

I know this article is being hypothetical, and Woodstock is about diversity in popular music, but some of these people like Beyonce, Chance The Rapper, and that Grande girl shouldn't be allowed within a hundred miles of this event.

Re: Woodstock 50th Anniversary Planned

It’ll certainly be interesting to see who they get. Frankly I think Desert Trip was about as close to a “new” Woodstock they’re gonna get. The festival circuit is packed already and I’ll be surprised if they can get a lineup worth shaking a stick at. Look forward to seeing what they do though.
