Woodstock '99 continues to beef up its already formidable lineup this week as Megadeth, Sevendust, Ben Lee, and Indigenous have been added to its roster.
Capitol Records announced Megadeth's slot at Woodstock via the band's official Web site, while Sevendust confirmed its place on the bill directly to MTV News Thursday afternoon when the Vans Warped Tour stopped in Seattle.
Spokespeople for Ben Lee and Indigenous also told MTV News that their artists would be on hand when Woodstock '99 unfolds in Rome, New York on July 23-25.
In addition to those acts, former Jane's Addiction and Porno for Pyros frontman Perry Farrell will reportedly be added to the Woodstock bill, with an announcement possibly coming as early as Monday. Representatives for the Supersuckers have also acknowledged that the band would participate in the festival in some capacity.
The Woodstock '99 camp could not confirm or deny the potential inclusion of any of these acts, but additional announcements
are expected to be made on Monday.
The addition of Megadeth and Sevendust would turn Woodstock into quite the metal shindig as the high-octane outfits would join a bill that already includes Metallica, Korn, Limp Bizkit, Rage Against The Machine, Kid Rock, Buckcherry, and the Insane Clown Posse. Supplying Woodstock's less metallic moments will be DMX, Bush, Dave Matthews Band, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fatboy Slim, Jewel, the Offspring, Everlast, Sugar Ray, Sheryl Crow, Wyclef Jean, and many more (for a complete roster of confirmed Woodstock acts, see "Woodstock Adds ICP, Moby, Oleander, Buckcherry").
The show would give both Megadeth and Sevendust the chance to preview material from their upcoming albums. Megadeth will deliver "Risk" to record stores on August 31, while Sevendust will likely trot out songs from its upcoming collection "Home," which arrives on August 24.
Tickets for the three-day event are still available through
