UPDATE (2/19): Festival promoter Goldenvoice released a statement to Billboard, defending the veracity of the lineup announced Tuesday. "Our festival is 100% confirmed. Lineups are always subject to change," a rep said via email.

UPDATE: After the publishing of this post, Lil' Kim, Mase and Twista said they have no affiliation with the festival. Billboard has reached out to Lovers & Friends for comment. 

If you're a fan of some emerging R&B artists, but still have an early 2000s soul, this is the festival for you. Goldenvoice revealed the full lineup for their Lovers & Friends Festival in Carson, Calif. on Tuesday (Feb. 18), which blends nostalgic R&B and hip-hop artists with newcomers all on one stage.

The inaugural festival is slated for May 9 inside the cavernous Dignity Health Sports Park. Headlining acts bring a blast from the past with artists such as Ms. Lauryn Hill, Ludacris, TLC, Lil' Jon and Usher taking the stage. Get ready for a 2020 "Yeah!" performance. Rising stars in the mix include Saweetie, Houston's Megan Thee Stallion, and Summer Walker.

Pre-sale tickets will be available starting on Thursday (Feb. 20) with the general public having their shot on Friday (Feb. 21) at 10 a.m. PT. General admission tickets to the May 9 event start at $145 with VIP tickets available for $250 and Super VIP being billed for $450 plus fees. Payment plan options are being offered starting at just $19.99 down.
