In addition to previously announced performers Rita Ora, Calvin Harris and Skrillex, the Labor Day weekend event in Philadelphia will feature Drake, Pearl Jam, Janelle Monae and legendary rappers Run DMC.

Sunday, Sept. 2 features more rock music, with headliner Pearl Jam and Chris Cornell, but hip-hop is well-represented with Drake, Odd Future and Run DMC. Odd Future are performing without Frank Ocean, who is on a solo tour to promote his ‘Channel Orange’ album.

Props to curator Jay-Z for putting together an impressive lineup with superstars in rap, rock, and EDM and some big names in indie and alternative rock as well. He lived up to his initial promise, when he told fans at a press conference, “I can’t do half-baked work. So I’m really putting my all into this.”

Sponsored by Budweiser, the event takes place at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philly. Earlybird two-day passes are still available on the festival website for $135 plus fees.
