Chicago’s North Coast Music Festival has announced its lineup, and Midwestern hip-hop heads have a whole lot to look forward to. D’Angelo, The Roots, Chromeo, The Chemical Brothers, Atmosphere and Wale have all been confirmed for the three day mega-concert, which will take place September 4-6 in the city’s Union Park.

2015 will mark the sixth year the North Coast fest has gone down, and acros that time it’s steadily grown from a small, primarily jam band-tinged weekend into one of the most diverse artist lineups in the country. D’Angelo and The Vanguard will headline one of the three nights, with The Chemical Brothers getting a top-billing slot as well (the electro duo also headlined the first North Coast fest in 2009). A third headliner, rumored to be a high-profile rock act, will be announced in the coming weeks.

Tickets for The North Coast Festival–billed as “summer’s last stand”–are already on sale, and you can nab three day passes for roughly $180 here. Read the full lineup below and stay tuned for more summer festival news.
