[lastfm]At The Drive-In[/lastfm], Live On Letterman veterans Florence + the Machine and The Shins, and the Afghan Wigs will perform, but the lineup features far more than rock mainstays – [lastfm]Justice[/lastfm], [lastfm]Avicii[/lastfm], [lastfm]Kaskade[/lastfm], and [lastfm]Calvin Harris[/lastfm] are some dance music’s biggest DJ/producers at the moment.

Indie fans have a plethora of killer talent to see: [lastfm]Bloc Party[/lastfm] return after a long hiatus, enigmatic [lastfm]Sigur Ros[/lastfm], post-21st century R&B star [lastfm]The Weeknd[/lastfm], and [lastfm]Odd Future[/lastfm] crooner [lastfm]Frank Ocean[/lastfm] will perform. [lastfm]M83[/lastfm] (with whom we interviewed), [lastfm]Twin Shadow[/lastfm], [lastfm]Miike Snow[/lastfm], [lastfm]Franz Ferdinand[/lastfm], and [lastfm]Metric[/lastfm] round out the list of dance-rock performers.
