The Super Bowl wasn’t enough for Usher. The eight-time Grammy winner will also headline this year’s Lovers and Friends festival. The just-announced lineup includes former halftime performers Snoop Dogg, Nelly, and though she would rather we forget her Super Bowl appearance, Janet Jackson.

General admission tickets, starting at $325, are available beginning10 a.m. PT Friday, January 26 here.

Scheduled for May 4 at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds, the shindig will also include  Backstreet Boys, Lil Wayne, Alicia Keyes, Mary J. Blige, Ja Rule, Ludacris, and Ciara.

The full lineup is below:

First Downbeat for Tiësto

DJ Tiësto, the Vegas icon hailed as “the godfather of EDM,” will perform as what the NFL is billing as the Super Bowl’s first-ever in-game DJ.

“I’m excited to be a part of the Super Bowl LVIII!” the Dutch DJ said in a statement. “And it’s even more incredible that it’s in my favorite place — Las Vegas.”

Tiësto won’t be the first to perform as players warm up for a Super Bowl on the field, but he will be the first to spin during the game itself.

“As one of the most influential DJ/producers who helped define the culture of Las Vegas and electronic music around the world, Tiësto is the perfect artist to help us create an unforgettable gameday experience for our fans, players, and viewers everywhere,” said Tim Tubito, director of event presentation and content at the NFL, in a statement.

Billy Joel/Sting Stadium Double-Header

Billy Joel and Sting will perform separate sets at Allegiant Stadium on November 9 as part of a limited tour of five U.S. cities. Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. PT, February 2, with presales starting at 10 a.m. Wednesday, January 3 via Ticketmaster.

The Killers have added two more shows on August 31 and September 1 to their previously announced residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Their first eight shows run August 14-30. The public on-sale will take place at 10 a.m. PT on Saturday, January 27.
