Woodstock 50 reportedly will also feature performances by Dead & Co., The Raconteurs, Imagine Dragons, Run the Jewels, The Killers and Greta Van Fleet.

AceShowbiz - Jay-Z, Chance The Rapper and The Black Keys will headline the Woodstock 50th anniversary supergig this summer.

"Woodstock 50" will also feature sets by Dead & Company, The Raconteurs, Imagine Dragons, Run the Jewels, The Killers, and Greta Van Fleet, according to Variety, ahead of original festival boss Michael Lang's official line-up announcement, which is expected this weekend.

The event is scheduled for 16-18 August at Watkins Glen, New York.

Robert Plant and Santana are also set to appear.

The guitar great, who played at Woodstock in 1969, will also perform at the Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival, alongside Arlo Guthrie, Ringo Starr, Edgar Winter and the Doobie Brothers, at the original festival site in Bethel, New York over the same weekend.

"It'll be an eclectic bill," Lang recently told Rolling Stone of Woodstock 50. "It'll be hip-hop and rock and some pop and some of the legacy bands from the original festival... I want it to be multi-generational."

Recent reports suggested Lang was struggling to finance his anniversary festival, but representatives told Billboard on Monday all the artists booked to perform have been paid.

"There's always been lots of rumours around Woodstock," Lang said. "We have excellent partners and an incredible talent line-up of over 80 artists which will be announced within the next couple of weeks. We're preparing a once in a lifetime event."
