The New York Times and Los Angeles Times reported April 1 that Woodstock '99 -- to be held July 23-25 in Rome, New York -- would feature acts including Aerosmith, Sheryl Crow, Korn, Metallica, Alanis Morissette, Limp Bizkit. and others.

Both newspapers cited industry sources as leaking the partial roster of the 30th Woodstock anniversary fest and noted promoter John Scher would not confirm the lineup prior to the April 8 official announcement.

The New York Times, which called the lineup "An eclectic bill with potentially wide appeal," quoted sources as saying the bill will also include Hole, Counting Crows, Willie Nelson, Bush and Ice Cube.

The Los Angeles Times didn't mention those acts, but led with the item that "Guns N' Roses - with lead singer Axl Rose and a new lineup - is close to signing as one of the headliners." The Los Angeles Times also said Sugar Ray was on the bill abd said there would be a "strong presence of young, rising acts." They quoted Scher as saying "This is a rite of passage for the core audience of 17-24 year olds. We're not trying to relive memories of '69 or even '94."

The New York Times quoted Pollstar editor-in-chief Gary Bongiovanni as saying "It's a tremendous lineup of artists?. It's going to be quite the musical event of the summer." The paper also said the show would feature a rave at night with dance acts like the Chemical Brothers.
