Diplo, Kygo and Logic will headline this year's InFieldFest during the Preakness Stakes horse races in Baltimore on May 18. The 11th annual festival, which will be held amid the 144th annual race at Pimlico Race Course, will also feature performances by Juice WRLD, Fisher and DJ Frank Walker.

This year organizers expect to attract 20,000 fans to InFieldFest on race day and will feature elevated food and beverage concessions, a direct view of Pimlico Race Course and betting lounges to help the next generation of fans get in on the action.

“This year’s InfieldFest represents the evolution of our entertainment program at The Stronach Group and carries out our mission to deliver world-class entertainment experiences with outstanding talent,” said Jimmy Vargas, EVP of entertainment at The Stronach Group. “This year’s InfieldFest lineup brings the excitement of the race track to the stage and encourages a new generation of race goers to experience The Preakness Stakes.”
