The Weeknd, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Wayne are among the performers at the Billboard Hot 100 music festival.
Billboard have long been successful in their recording sales through their many charts, and today they've decided to expand their brand with the announcement of the first Hot 100 music festival. Named after their most famous chart, the lineup is made up of many big names, but is not exclusive to those who perform well by Billboard's standards.
Headlining the fest are The Weeknd, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Skrillex, Justin Bieber, Jason Derulo, and an act that is (for the time being) still blurred out. Other notable rap and R&B acts are Fetty Wap, iLoveMakonnen, Main Attrakionz, and Natalie La Rose.
Check out the full lineup in the gallery above. The fest will take place August 22nd and 23rd at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater in New York.
Pre-sale tickets go up July 13th.
