It’s only March, but things are heating up for this year’s Summer Ends Music Festival. On Monday, the Tempe, Arizona-based festival announced its first batch of performers and will be held between September 24 and 27.
Among the first set of headlining acts is J. Cole, Jimmy Eat World and Slightly Stoopid. Other artists that are slated to play the late-September festival include Big Sean, Rebelution, Spoon, Thrice, G-Eazy and Pepper. Manchester Orchestra, Kevin Devine and The Green will also play set over the four-day stint.
More artists will be announced as the festival draws closer, and it’s been known to pack a punch in years past. 2014 saw The Replacements headline along with additional performances from The Violent Femmes, Capital Cities, Taking Back Sunday and iconic punk rockers Descendents.
This year’s festival will again be held at Tempe Beach Park. Pre-sale for tickets begins on Thursday, March 16 and general on-sale is scheduled for the following day, Friday, March 20.
