D'Angelo and Ne-Yo have been tapped to headline the 2013 Soul Beach Music Festival in Aruba, taking place over Memorial Day weekend.

The event will feature D'Angelo on the main stage of the Nikky Beach Amphitheatre in Aruba on May 25, while Ne-Yo will close out the three-night event the following evening. Comedian Sinbad leads the All-Star Comedy night featuring Paige Bryan with the Funk Stank Nasty Band on May 24. Additional artists for the weekend festival will be announced soon.

"We are thrilled to host an event of such magnitude on our One Happy Island where you can enjoy the performance of some of the worlds most talented and sought after artists during the Aruba Soul Beach Music Festival," says Ronella Tjin Asjoe-Croes, CEO of the Aruba Tourism Authority.

The pre-weekend events begin on May 22 with a welcome celebration. Events throughout the week include nightclub parties, live radio remote broadcasts and daytime beach bashes. Last year's festival featured performances from R. Kelly, Melanie Fiona, LL Cool J and more.
