Yesterday, Woodstock revealed the lineup for its 50th anniversary in Watkins Glen, NY. Featuring an assortment of headliners from Dead & Company to Miley Cyrus, the festival drew a variety of opinions from both industry insiders and would-be attendees.
For Kaskade, the festival lineup represents one thing… a snooze fest.
“Just looking at this Woodstock 50 line up… [sleeping emojis]…,” he tweeted, “sorry, dozed off there reading through it… so much for trying to capture the original spirit of the festival….”

For what it’s worth, many of the artists on the Woodstock ’69 lineup were considered “pop” for the era. Over time, we’ve glorified and edified these artists, likely in the same fashion that many of the artists on the ’19 lineup will be.
It’s still too early to tell how well the festival will sell, or what other artists might still be added to the lineup. But for now, Kaskade has made his stance clear.
The festival will go down August 16-18 in Watkins Glen, NY. Tickets for Woodstock 50 will go on sale April 22nd. Complete information is available on the festival’s website.
