Those Woodstock 50 rumors were true.

On Tuesday night, event organizers revealed the official lineup for the much anticipated music festival, confirming performances by JAY-Z, Change the Rapper, Vince Staples, Miley Cyrus, Halsey, Run the Jewels, Janelle Monáe, Princess Nokia, Common, and much, much more.

"The lineup will be a mix of some of the old bands who are still performing and a lot of new headline talent. Probably more than any other festival's ever had," Michael Lang, co-founder of the original 1969 festival, told Billboard earlier this year. "It'll cross genres from rock to pop, folk and hip hop. It's kind of representative of this idea of engagement and trying to steer toward acts that are heavily involved in social issues. So there's some real gravitas in the performance and we want it to live on beyond the event."

The lineup also includes artists who appeared at the the 1969 Woodstock: We're talking Santana, David Crosby, John Fogerty, Canned Heat, as well as members of Dead & Co. The performances will take place on three stages: the Peace Stage, Love Stage, and Music Stage—names that nod to the original music fest, which featured legendary artists like Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, the Who, and Janis Joplin.
