First year event has 60% female lineup including Elle Goulding, Kali Uchis and Jorja Smith.
Virgin Fest, the two-day celebration of people and planet from veteran festival producer Jason Felts and the Virgin Group’s Sir Richard Branson, announced the lineup today for the June 6-7 multistage festival at Banc of California Stadium + Exposition Park in Los Angeles.
Fast-rising phenomenon Lizzo will headline this first-year event, making Virgin Fest her inaugural headliner appearance during a busy summer for the “Juice” singer who just took home three Grammy awards. Joining her on the bill is multi-hyphenate hip hop superstar ASAP Rocky as well as Anderson .Paak and the Free Nationals and Jamaican-American electronica dance music trio Major Lazer.
This year’s lineup is 60 percent female explained Felts, who said the inaugural festival was designed to have a "borderless, international" lineup, noting "my goal behind Virgin Fast was very simple — all are welcome here. Festivals traditionally have always been a place where you can be yourself, but we're taking it to a whole nother level."
