Tickets for Woodstock's 50th anniversary festival haven't even gone on sale yet, and one of its headliners has already pulled out. On Friday (April 5), The Black Keys took to social media to let fans know they would no longer be performing at Woodstock 50. "Due to a scheduling conflict, The Black Keys will unfortunately need to cancel their set at @woodstockfest," the statement reads. "The band wants to let fans know as soon as possible and before tickets go on sale." Tickets go on sale April 22.

Fans will have plenty of chances to see the rock duo perform this year. They recently announced the Let's Rock tour, with support from Modest Mouse, and will be traversing the country this fall.

Check out their Woodstock statement below.

The festival's lineup is eclectic, to say the least, with artists like The Killers, Miley Cyrus, Santana, The Lumineers, The Raconteurs, Dead & Company, Chance The Rapper, Sturgill Simpson, Jay-Z, Imagine Dragons, Halsey and Cage the Elephant all set to headline. The Black Keys' replacement has yet to be announced.

Woodstock 50 is slated to go down August 16-18 in Watkins Glen, New York, which is about three hours from the original 1969 site.
