Just over a week ago, Woodstock revealed a massive lineup for their 50th anniversary event. The bill received a very divided reaction from fans who expressed concerns over the shift in genre. Now, the stage-by-stage breakdown of the three-day festival has been revealed, pairing most like-minded acts together with a few interesting exceptions.

Check out the full breakdown below.

Woodstock will feature four stages: The Peace Stage, The Love Stage, The Music Stage and The Garden Stage.

Stages have been divided into (mostly) similar acts, leading up to that night’s headliners.

The Killers, Miley Cyrus and Santana will headline on Friday, and honestly, we’re just extremely amused that FEVER 333 will be able to say they’ve shared the stage with Miley Cyrus.

Saturday’s headliners include Dead & Company, the Black Keys and Chance The Rapper—and no, Greta Van Fleet will not be performing on the same day as Robert Plant.

The final day brings Jay-Z, Imagine Dragons and Halsey in as our big hitters. The Music Stage that day is the best place to be for a lineup that’s a bit all over the place. Halsey will headline, while acts such as Pussy Riot, Brandi Carlile and Earl Sweatshirt lead up to the night’s event.

Check out the full four-stage breakdown below.

Halsey reflects on Woodstock slot after divided lineup reaction

While the lineup overall has amassed quite a few disappointed classic rockers, Halsey seems to be honored to play such a staple in the music community.

“The Woodstock lineup seems to be a bit divisive, but I am very honored to be included in a lineup of artists who all appear to be constantly influencing culture or representing social activism,” Halsey says in a tweet. “Using their voices. That’s Woodstock to me. I’m honored and I can’t wait.”


That said, many people have shared their own thoughts on the festival’s lineup. While some think Woodstock has done a wonderful job of representing artists of all genres in 2019, others think the festival has strayed from its roots and become a cash-grab.

What do you think of this year’s Woodstock lineup? Sound off in the comments below.

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
