If Brian Wilson’s legacy wasn’t already obvious, it is now: The Beach Boys frontman is getting his own music festival titled—what else?—Brian Fest.

Norah Jones, The Killers’ Brandon Flowers, and Heart’s Ann Wilson are set to headline the show, which will take place March 30 at Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre. Proceeds will go toward the Jameson (yes, as in the whiskey) Neighborhood Fund, which benefits charities that make education and resources readily available to artistically inclined communities.

Wilson is set to release his eleventh studio album, No Pier Pressure, April 7. See below for the full Brian Fest lineup.
