Ringo Starr and Santana are scheduled to play at the Woodstock anniversary festival at New York's Bethel Woods in August.

A Season of Song & Celebration is a festival set to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the generation-defining 1969 Woodstock Music and Art Fair. The event will include live music, TED-style talks, special exhibits and a director's-cut screening of the documentary Woodstock.

Ringo Starr and his All Star Band will perform Aug. 16, along with Arlo Guthrie and Edgar Winter, who both performed at the original festival. Performing Aug. 17 are Carlos Santana, who also took the stage back in 1969, and The Doobie Brothers.

The festival also announced it had to scale back after losing one of its producers.
