The performers have been announced for the commemoration of the iconic concert Woodstock music festival.

When half a million people gathered in a field in upstate New York, they saw performers like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Joe Cocker during the three days of peace, love and rock and roll. 

Half a century later, music fans will now be able to enjoy music from those who were huge names back then, as well as those who are the top artists now.

But “Woodstock 50” isn’t just going to be a concert held at the original site, now the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, the Poughkeepsie Journal reported

The weekend will start with a screening of the “Woodstock” documentary on Aug. 15, then a concert by Ringo Starr, Arlo Guthrie and Edgar Winter on Aug. 16, followed by a concert by Santana joined by the Doobie Brothers on Aug. 17, the newspaper reported.

In addition, to those events that are part of the Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival, there will be a full-fledged Woodstock 50 event, with 80 acts that span the decades and musical styles, according to the Journal.
