It appears Woodstock 50 at Watkins Glen International is moving forward as planned.
The news comes on the heels of rumors the three-day music festival, celebrating the iconic Woodstock music-festival’s 50th anniversary, was having financial problems.
Billboard.com is reporting a number of artists performing have been paid in full.
With the deposits now paid, the lineup for the festival will likely be announced in the next two weeks, Billboard has learned. Artists such as Dead and Company, Santana, The Killers, Imagine Dragons and Chance the Rapper will be performing at the festival, which is taking place at the Watkins Glen International Speedway, about an hour-and-a-half east of the original Woodstock site, where non-profit Bethel Woods is planning its own tribute at its 15,000-person amphitheater with Live Nation.
