On Friday, July 11th rap super star and Detroit native Big Sean will headline on the Auto Value Main Stage. After exploding onto the rap scene in 2007, the last 2 years have been extremely successful for the ‘hottest rookie’ (GQ Magazine), including winning ‘Best New Artist’ at the 2012 BET Awards. As a double Grammy nominee for his collaboration with Kany West, Pusha T, and 2 Chainz, this rapper’s debut album titled ‘Finally Famous’ has come to fruition. Joining Big Sean on Friday is rapper Juicy J. Founding member of Three 6 Mafia, Juicy J is working on his latest solo album The Hustle Continues. His two-decade run in the hip-hop industry has led to this moment where he strives to bridge the gap between old and new fans under one trippy umbrella.

Headlining on the Auto Value Main Stage on Saturday, July 12th is indie pop group Fitz and The Tantrums. A chart-topping, show-stopping modern pop combo unlike any other is responsible for songs like the impossibly catchy “Out Of My League”. From the studio to the stage, Fitz and The Tantrums give everything they have to anything they do, leaving it all on the floor night in and night out. The artistic audaciousness and pure pop punch, More Than Just A Dream fully confirms that Fitz and The Tantrums are here to stay. Joining them on Saturday, July 12th is the following; Dr Dog, Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr, The Orwells, X Ambassadors, Royal Teeth and Chappo, with more to come!

Bringing a little bit of R&B, Soul, and Jazz to the Festival on Sunday, July 13th is critically acclaimed legends Earth, Wind & Fire.
