News 21/03/2019

Woodstock50 has released their lineup and we're here to help you filter through the acts that you most probably never heard of.

We'll be going through the list according to the order of the Woodstock50 lineup and will be excluding acts from the original lineup.

Day 2 Lineup

Dead and Company, Chance the Rapper, Black Keys, Sturgill Simpson, Greta Van Fleet, Portugal. The Man, Leon Bridges, Gary Clark Jr., Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, David Crosby and Friends, Dawes, Margo Price, Nahko and Medicine for The People, India.Arie, Jade Bird, Country Joe McDonald, Rival Sons, Emily King, Soccer Mommy, Sir, Taylor Bennett, Amy Helm, Courtney Hadwin, Pearl, John-Robert, IAMDDB

We have previously featured the Black Keys on our Music Worth a Listen page. The band features guitar and drums duo, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, who are heavily influenced by the blues and garage rock. With a new album on the way, the duo will have a powerful set for Woodstock50.

Country rock musician Sturgill Simpson is a hell of a rocker. We featured him on Music Worth a Listen once. The man draws influence from legends like Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Keith Whitley and many more and is said to share similar vocals to Waylon Jennings.

Another one featured on our Music Worth a Listen page, Leon Bridges draws a lot of inspiration from '60s R&B. Think a modern take on Otis Redding and Sam Cooke.

He performed at Western Springs earlier in January 2019 as a supporting act to Mumfords & Sons, alongside Michael Kiwanuka.

There is a lot to say about Gary Clark Jr. that we don't know where to begin! We'll leave one of his best live performances below and you can hear him for yourself.

We promise you won't regret it.

David Crosby and Friends weren't on the original lineup, but we don't need to tell you how brilliant they are.

A few lads recommended us to check out Rival Sons and boy we are not disappointed. It's going to be a rock n' roll set from them at Woodstock50.
