The lineup for Denver’s new music festival is here and it’s, well, DAMN.

Kendrick Lamar, Florence + The Machine and Stevie Wonder will headline Grandoozy this September at Overland Park Golf Course.

The lineup also includes Logic, Sturgill Simpson, Miguel, St. Vincent, Phoenix, Young the Giant, The War on Drugs, Ty Dolla $ign, Kelela, Denver locals Tennis, and because nothing is perfect, the Chainsmokers.

There will be a big local food element to Grandoozy, too. Production team Superfly brought in a all-star roster that includes Adam Schlegel (Snooze), Biju Thomas (Biju’s Little Curry Shop), Dana Faulk Query (Big Red F), Jeff Suskin (“Dining Out,” Top Taco, Chicken Fight), Justin Cucci (el Five, Linger, Root Down), Carrie Baird (Bar Dough and “Top Chef” contestant), Jennifer Jasinski (Rioja, Bistro Vendome, Euclid Hall, Stoic & Genuine, Ultreia) and Tommy Lee (Hop Alley, Uncle). 

Naturally, there’s a craft beer and craft cocktail piece to this, too. Steve Kurowski of the Colorado Brewers Guild will be curating the beer selection. Chad Michael George of The Way Back and Wayward lead the spirits program.

The festival, brought to Denver by the production company behind Bonnaroo, will take over the golf course Sept. 14-16. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday., March 23. Three-day passes will cost $224.50 for general admission and $599.50 for VIP — and there’s a layaway plan option that let’s you split the cost of the pass into multiple payments.
