The festival — which takes place August 4-5 at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, MD — has just announced some big additions to its lineup, including some great bands and DJs that really run the gamut of musical genres.

The updated lineup now includes the following artists:

Is it me or is this lineup really solid? I think we’ve got an impressive Lollapalloza competitor on our hands, don’t you? They’ve really covered everything from indie rock to hip-hop to mainstream rock to all types of electronic music. Very tempting.
