Performers will be spread across four stages at Woodstock 50

More than 80 performers are scheduled to take part in Woodstock 50 in August.

But, how many of those musicians attendees can see will depend on how efficient they are at planning their weekend, and how much of each performance they want to see.

Four different stages will be utilized each day of the 50th anniversary festival, organizers announced Wednesday.

Woodstock 50 is scheduled for Aug. 16-18 at Watkins Glen International racetrack in Schuyler County. Jay-Z, The Killers, Miley Cyrus, Imagine Dragons and The Black Keys are among the headliners.

The original Woodstock Music and Art Fair in Sullivan County was held Aug. 15-18, 1969.

Each stage for the anniversary festival is named for themes of that original event: Peace, Love, Music and Garden.

The top performers are spread out among those stages. However, it’s not clear how possible it is to see every one of the headliners, as the timing of performances have not yet been released.

For instance, on Aug. 16, The Killers are headlining the Peace Stage, Miley Cyrus will be on the Love Stage, Santana is scheduled for the Music Stage and John Sebastian will play on the Garden Stage.

The Black Keys, Dead & Company, Chance the Rapper and David Crosby & Friends will all be on different stages on Aug. 17, while Jay-Z, Imagine Dragons, Halsey and Canned Heat are headlining the four stages on Aug. 18.
