The Seattle rockers will play for one night only during the event, which goes down September 1 and 2 at the city’s Fairmount Park.

They'll be joined by other another comeback act, R&B singer D’Angelo.

Curated by Hov himself, the lineup also includes Skrillex, Odd Future and the Maybach Music Group with Rick Ross, Wale and Meek Mill.

Fans of Afrojack; Calvin Harris; Passion Pit; Santigold; Miike Snow; Dirty Projectors; X; Janelle Monae; Prince Royce; Rita Ora; The Knocks; and Savoy will be happy to hear that they'll all be present for the two-day Labor Day weekend festival.

Tickets will go on sale Wednesday at 10 a.m. ET via and, and there are more acts to come.

Even with what's been announced thus far, Jay-Z recently told MTV that he’s proud to play with such an eclectic mix of artists.

"Whenever I enter into a project, I try to hit on some touch points,” he said of the proposed 28 acts. “The first thing is: Is it great? The second one is: Is it gonna push the culture forward?"
