Santana is the first artist confirmed on Woodstock 2019

Woodstock festival celebrates 50 years since its first edition and there is a little confusion that came up when two festivals were announced to celebrate the five decades, because there are two festivals that will happen on the same dates and in close proximity and Carlos Santana is the first one confirmed artist to one of them.


The first of these is two festivals is the Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival, which will be held at the same venue as Woodstock 1969 to commemorate the brand but has no involvement with producer Michael Lang, one of the makers of the original party. This festival confirmed his first artist that will be Carlos Santana, that was in the first one made in 69.

The second is precisely the Lang Festival, which bears the name Woodstock 50 and will roll just under 200 miles from the first, also in New York state, in a venue that has hosted gigantic events in the past.

Santana in the “Woodstock”

Well, the first artist to be announced for one of the two events is Santana, a 71-year-old guitarist who played at Woodstock in 1969 and 50 years later will perform at the Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival as part of his next tour with the Doobie Brothers.

The lineups for the two “Woodstocks” this year should be made available soon.
