FYF Fest, the annual two-day music event held in Los Angeles, announced its lineup Tuesday. Kendrick Lamar and the newly reformed LCD Soundsystem received top billing for the festival, scheduled for August 27 and 28. Other artists slated for the event include Tame Impala, Grace Jones, Beach House, Grimes, Hot Chip, Father John Misty, Explosions in the Sky, Rae Sremmurd, Blood Orange, Young Thug, and Vince Staples.

The quickly growing event drew attention last year when Frank Ocean canceled his headlining set due to a “scheduling conflict” two days beforehand. Kanye West filled in on short notice and even brought out Rihanna to sing their collaboration “FourFiveSeconds.”

Lamar and LCD Soundsystem will headline a number of festivals this summer, including topping two of the three days of New York’s inaugural Panorama Festival.
