There are over 60 confirmed artists for the event. These artists represent almost every genre of music from rock to reggae and from funk to folk.

Some of the artists slated to perform include the Foo Fighters, George Clinton, Fuel, Fountains of Wayne, Ween, Puddle of Mudd, Johnny Lang and Wyclef Jean.

There will be four different stages set up with performances happening simultaneously.
