Dead & Company, Jay-Z, Chance the Rapper, The Black Keys, The Raconteurs, Imagine Dragons, Halsey and other acts also top the bill.

Woodstock 50, the highly anticipated three-day music festival celebrating the 50 year anniversary of the original, has officially announced its lineup for its August 16th, 17th and 18th dates, and not everyone is happy about it.

It'll take place between August 16-18 and the lineup for the highly anticipated reboot was just released today.

Three more days of peace, love, and music are on the way-and they're going to be jam-packed.
