Additionally, other artists who will take the stage are: Solange, Anderson .Paak, A Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu, Kehlani, Run the Jewels, Thundercat, 6LACK, Noname, Moses Sumney, Flying Lotus, Little Dragon, Mura Masa, Majid Jordan, MGMT, Joey Purp, Kamaiyah, Princess Nokia, Avalon Emerson, Hannibal Burress, and more.
The once-two-day festival will now expand into three, from Friday, July 21 to Sunday, July 23.
