Genius will bring the third annual installment of the Genius IQ/BBQ to its Brooklyn headquarters on Sept. 7. The music encyclopedia revealed the full lineup of performers on Monday (Aug. 19), with 21 Savage headlining the event.

The end-of-summer celebration -- an all-day music knowledge affair -- will also feature performances from Doja Cat, NYC's Lil TJay, Ann Marie, Yung Baby Tate, and more. Prizes will also be given out to fans who can flex their musical prowess by passing a special version of The Genius Test series. 

“Each time we put on Genius IQ/BBQ, we lean deeper into what sets it apart from a traditional concert," says Elizabeth Milch, Genius' director of content. "Our biggest priority is the atmosphere we create for intimacy and deep engagement between artists and fans, which also mirrors what Genius does on the internet every day. We’re so thrilled that 21 Savage, an artist at the top of their game in every way—and who starred in our earliest episodes of VERIFIED and IRL—is our headliner. He and the other amazing artists on the lineup will make this year’s Genius IQ/BBQ a special and memorable experience for every person there."

Past years have seen energetic headlining performances from 2 Chainz and Pusha T. Tickets are free to those 18 and up, and will go on sale on Genius' website starting on Aug. 21 at noon ET.
