Woodstock 50 has recently faced their first problem concerning the anniversary event. According to Consequence Of Sound, one of the festival’s headliners, the Black Keys have canceled their scheduled appearance.
The band cite “scheduling conflicts” as the reason for pulling from the festival. The band took to Facebook yesterday to share the news.
“Due to a scheduling conflict, The Black Keys will unfortunately need to cancel their set at Woodstock,” the band say. “The band wants to let fans know as soon as possible and before tickets go on sale.”
Woodstock’s 50th anniversary festival will also welcome Woodstock-era staples such as Dead & Company, Santana, John Fogerty and Robert Plant And The Sensational Shape Shifters. Additionally, other bands that will definitely ring a bell to scene enthusiasts include Fever 333, Bishop Briggs, Grandson and Boygenius.

Additionally, the festival recently revealed the stage-by-stage breakdown of the three-day festival, which pairs most like-minded acts together with a few interesting exceptions.
However, despite the impressive lineup, the festival has gotten backlash for their recent shift in genre. Additionally, many folks believe the festival has strayed from its roots and become a cash-grab of sorts.
In other Black Keys-related news, the duo is gearing up to embark on a tour with Modest Mouse. The Let’s Rock tour will start this upcoming September. You can check out the dates below and secure your tickets here.
