“We’re headlining Just Like Heaven and cannot believe what a raaaaaaaad lineup it is this year,” Yeah Yeah Yeahs said in a statement. “MGMT performing Oracular Spectacular! Fever Ray and M83 performing NEW music? what bliss! Karen cannot wait to rub elbows with goddesses Peaches and Azealia!”

Yeah Yeah Yeahs promised to perform “some deep cuts” from their album Fever to Tell to celebrate the LP’s 20th anniversary. (“Don’t be square!” the group wrote. “Be there!”)

As for MGMT, the group shared they’re “psyched” to return to the festival, adding that they’ll hit the stage with “all of Oracular Spectacular.” They added, “And of course, we’ll be taking this opportunity to do some heavy experimentation. Expect the unexpected.”

Phoenix were featured on the festival’s lineup last year, while Yeah Yeah Yeahs, MGMT, Strfkr, and the Faint were among the artists on the festival’s first lineup back in 2019.

General admission tickets for the show start at $149, VIP passes cost $369, and special “Clubhouse” access cost $649.
