remarkable lineup,” says John Tonelli, head of Debt Capital Markets & Syndication at Oppenheimer & Co. Inc. in an official statement.
Woodstock 50 boasts a lineup of artists of all genres, furthering the festivals founding principles of art and peace. Performers include Jay Z, The Killers, Miley Cyrus, and Janelle Monae.
“We’ve lined up artists who won’t just entertain, but will remind the world that music has the
power to bring people together, to heal, to move us to action and to tell the stories of a
generation,” said Michael Lang, co-founder, and producer of the 1969 and 2019 Woodstock
“We look forward to putting on an incredible festival. Words cannot express how
appreciative Woodstock 50, the artists, the fans and the community are to Oppenheimer
for joining with us to make W50 a reality.”
